I'm always for not mowing, and this can be my proof for why it's not a good idea to mow! Great pix :)

If you didn't spend so much time fritting around, busy as a bee at school, you would have fewer grasshopper days around here. Get antdustrious and add more words. But I guess you have your priorities. Sniff. Said she who manages to crank out one only every now and then.

Seriously. Photos are always much appreciated.
