Quote for the Week

This week's quotation is attributed to James Dent. I could find little identifying information so as to attribute these words to the correct James Dent. There seems to be a surplus of them on the Web.

In any event, a James Dent said: "A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawn mower is broken."

If you live in a state similar to mine, you know how daunting is the task of keeping the lawn mowed. The concept of a broken lawn mower makes one smile with relief. My! How grass does grow in the summer here.

In fact, the rapidity of grass growth is why I decided to incorporate native grasses and wildflowers in the yard of our weekend home. I love it. So do many who have stopped to comment about the natural beauty of our little rancho's grounds. Unfortunately, I don't think our neighbors, who have a suburban-esque expanse of manicured lawn, agree.

Takeaway Truth

Summer may be obvious to all who behold this heated season, but beauty is still in the eye of the beholder.
