Friday Favorite: Green Grass

May 15th, 2015

It’s a beautiful thing to see so much green this time of year. It seems like all you need is a bit of rain and a few warm days and the grass starts growing like crazy.
I love seeing green everywhere I look. Soon enough all the deciduous trees will have their leaves and green will be once again the predominate color of the landscape. Even though I’ll tire of it later in the summer, I’m relishing the need to mow!

What seasons are most green in your climate?

    Susy, Spring, of course, is the most green here and my favorite season. By August the lush green is beginning to turn Autumn brown with golden colors on the horizon. Grass is in full growth mode. Moisture is plentiful and lawn machines are heard every day in the urban areas of my city. Lawn services are growing as more and more folks turn to them for lawn care. I, for one, do not have lawn service but I suspect some neighbors would think I should. Dumping chemicals on a lawn six times a year with side dressings of weed killer is not my opinion of lawn care. I rather like the feel of a lawn mower vibrating along the yard cutting the grass. The nitrogen rich grass is great mulch for gardening but only if it’s chemical free. So let’s all start our engines and let the grass mowing begin.

    Have a great favorite Spring activity day.

    Definitely Spring here in the NW. There are a thousand different shades of green out there right now. Our grass is such a bright green, it’s almost neon! :)
    We just got a Green lawnmower…no more gas, nasty fumes or ear splitting noise when mowing. It is a mulching mower as well so we just leave the clippings on the grass to return the nitrogen.
    Even the color of the mower is green! :)
