That two months from now the view might look like this….


That is a view of the west lawn taken last May, we are experimenting with not cutting the entire lawn, you can see the flowers in the grass on the left, all the faint yellow and pink.  We just cut some paths through it, and then cut it down in mid-August.  We will see how it works this year.  Right now (well before it snowed again), it isn’t looking gorgeous; I suspect as soon as the snow melts, I’ll need to rake it in order to pick up all the leaves and sticks.  The odd thing on the right is a cage for a young white oak.  I am quite sure that Robin wants spring to come.  He keeps forlornly going out into the field and looking for the grass.
