First cut

Our lawn got its first spring cut today. I did not realize it had happened until I went out to plant some flowers- and oh the smell. That fresh wonderful fresh smell of cut green grass. I don't have words to describe it but it was warm enough that I was able to take off my shoes and wander barefoot through the blades of newly cut green. Today has been the first day that it has felt like spring, the sun was warm, the sky was blue and the fog lifted early. I had planted some sweet peas earlier this year but added a few more to the mix today.
"Sitting quietly,doing nothing, spring comes and the grass grows by itself."

    Sounds like heaven in your corner of the world!

  4. You have a lovely blog! Your photos are exquisite! I'll be back to visit more.

  5. Lorrie - that can't be! You lucky girl! Cutting the grass and planting... I can't even see the grass here - it is buried under the snow...

  6. I love that smell- I am so jealous- I guess snow has a smell- if you can smell before it freezes your nose!

  7. Oh, now you are making me think about spring. Still pretty wintery here, but I'm longing to feel the grass between my toes now! A lovely post. X

  10. As I peeked out of my window this morning I saw fog and ice covered cars on my little street....JAck frost has been playing, each blade of grass in my garden is twinkling with ice...have a lovely day across the H

  11. happy spring!!! loving it! have a great day my darling friend...

  12. Oh, I love the smell of freshly cut grass! When we lived in New Mexico, we didn't have any grass in our yard and I didn't miss it except for the smell. Here, we have some and I love it when Daniel cuts it. We also have fire ants though, so no skipping barefoot through the grass for me... Happy Spring!!! Love, Silke

  13. Lorrie...saw you over at Farmhouse....

    I'm still sweet pea planting over here :-)

    Buddy says Thanks for the HUG!
