I am sure that many WordPress bloggers will be posting beautiful landscapes, with bare trees and falling snow, or sunny beaches full of bathers to demonstrate the theme for this week. Mine is a little bit silly, no wonderful photography, and I bet I’m the only one who chooses this subject! In Central Victoria where I live, with the coming of Spring and Summer the grass grows as one watches it, so the change of season means endless weekly mowing of my property – to make it more safe on bushfire days and to keep it short so one can see any snakes that might be around. Let me introduce……my essential ride on mower, now several years old and costly to keep going as each season something always needs fixing. It only breaks when it is needed, and has just had a new drive belt and some sort of critical spring replaced by the bandit mower fixers in a nearby town, which cost me more $$$ than I expected!
