Prairie Lawnmower...

one of my dreams is to have a beautiful yard..

one with flowers in bloom all summer long...

one with green, lush lawn...

so this year i made a vow to tackle our yard...

my old soul son was put in charge of mowing the lawn...

which he was suppose to be doing this morning...

when i didn't hear the rumble of our ancient lawnmower, i stepped outside...

to this...



Photobucket

may i present our new prairie lawnmower...

she's quiet, she fertilizes as she goes, and she doesn't consume $3.00 a gallon gas...

someone help me...

i do believe i've given up...

Hi Kristen,
Who needs a beautiful yard when you have that beautiful sight to look at. What a darling boy!
I'd trade my pretty yard for a prairie, barn and horse anyday ~

Enjoy your day ~ I'll be out picking weeds from my yard!

I'm still rolling!! I don't know how many times we thought of doing that, only to end up using the regular mower. your son definately has a great imagination and your right...she's cheaper :)
