I cannot believe that I have to cut the grass. While it is patchy in many places, there are more than a few clumps of grass that more than 3 inches in height. I have yet to tune-up the lawnmower - will have to buy a new spark plug, air filter and some oil and see if the beast will startup. I have been busy with several indoor projects, but I need to get going on my outdoor projects. The corner flower bed needs to be expanded with a retaining wall and I need to do something about the bed behind the garage - it is a pitiful excuse for a bed.
