This morning, after a delicious breakfast of homemade waffles, eggs, bacon, and coffee, I felt the need to mow the lawn.
I love mowing the lawn when I have time to be lazy about it. And when it’s sunny and the air is crisp - a perfect fall day. When I was done, I felt inspired to stroll around and snap shots of stuff that’s out there every time I mow the lawn.
- The herb garden that it still growing parsley. I cannot eat enough to keep up with it, it’s a lot of parsley.
- Marigolds are the true fall flower, to me. Still looks beautiful with the dying buds.
- The lawn, after I mowed it. Do you mow your lawn in the same pattern? What is it? I follow the shape from the outside edge in, kind of like a spiral. It’s actually a new technique for me (I used to do rows) and I think it’s more efficient.
- Bobbi pins and moss from my last photo shoot. I was covered in glued-on moss (will post photos soon) and didn’t want to take it off in the house - so much mess!
- Brush and sawdust from the last bonfire we had. I hope I have the guts to try a winter bonfire.
- I liked the way the lawn mower looked in the sun and close up.
- Cut off the top of a mushroom. It’s upside-down.
- A hunk of log from my Dad’s old cherry tree. I love that the grass (or something) is growing from it.
- The only food left in the garden - leeks.
- A few months ago, James and I made a reclaimed-wood dining table for our backyard.
- Mom is saving these giant zucchini for their seeds.
- All that hard work paid off - the sandbag wall is holding up without any issue.
- Citronella plants are so lemony when you rub against them. My favourite plant for keeping bugs away and a bonus is that they look nice.
