Before the Rain

I have been watching the grass in my backyard get taller and taller over the past couple weeks. With the tall grass I had to make sure it was dry before mowing. I had planned on mowing on Saturday, but it was raining a bit in the morning.

Here you can see that tall and heavy grass in the backyard.

Usually after mowing I will water, but I will wait for tomorrow when it will get watered from the sky.

It was good to get the yard mowed so that I don’t have to worry about it for awhile. However, depending on the weather I will most likely mow again this weekend as the front yard will need a trim.

It is nice that spring is here. The trees are starting to turn green and flowers are starting to appear.
