After Friday night's fortune saying I'd have a four wheeled adventure, it certainly was, more so than before. I don't have pictures because it was either something happening too fast to capture or too gruesome to show.
Instead, I'll post some flower pictures taken after I was done mowing
As I was mowing, there were creatures everywhere. Frogs of all sizes hopping all over the place. I'm guess the weeks of rain and standing water has brought them out in full force. I tried to avoid them whenever possible.
Then there were bunnies. EVERYWHERE. Not sure if it's bunny mating season or what but they were all over, big, little and in between. They would dart out from tall grass and hop away at a high rate of speed.
Then there were birds. They followed the mower and were loving the freshly mowed grass and all the bugs/seed I presume it turned up.
...and clouds of dragonflies too.
Then the bad part of the adventure:
I ran over a snake in the tall grass. It was a rat snake, about two feet long. It was mortally injured, and could not move, as much as it tried. It was suffering and I couldn't let it continue like that. I went back to the house, got the machete and took care of things swiftly and as humanely as possible.
The whole circle of life moment. It was DEFINITELY an adventure like I've never had before.
Now maybe I should play those lotto numbers on the back of the fortune!
