An evening walk

My daughter, the "green" girl, was delighted to see that this grass has not been mowed on this empty lot in our subdivision. Much better for the environment, saves on gas and resources.......I didn't want to burst her bubble and tell her that the village will come and mow it next week since there is a law that grass can't be higher than so many feet....but maybe I would be wrong and our village has gone "green"!


  1. We have a city ordinance that says lawns must be mowed if they are between 6 and 9 inches tall. Lots or city lots are mown but I think they should be told it is wasteful and at the same times takes away wildlife cover and food.

    I am glad I was able to help you with the camera and that is how we all learn everything we all know -- from others.

    Thanks to you and others, I have fun trying to post things that may surprise some visitors; make others laugh a bit, but most of all make lots of people aware of things that might not know much about.

    When somebody actually takes the time to write a comment on my blogs, about my work and what I do, that to me is the biggest gift a person can give another. It is like a smile on greeting; it is a welcome handshake, and it gives me and my family some hope that the funny farm is still in the future on down the road.

    You, yourself, are an inspiration to me.

    Such beautiful photography of beautiful things, like a field of growing grass is like magic to see. Wow. It is impressive indeed.

    I come back to say, "thanks for visiting and leaving a comment" but a special thanks for taking the time to photograph interesting things of great beauty. Without that, blogging would be about as exciting as trying to scratch an itch in the right place at the wrong time.

    So, thanks for stopping at my blog. And I hope you know, by now, that when you do, I will always try to visit your blog, in return, and leave a comment. I do read what people write and your excellent photography got my attention.

  2. Green is fine as long as it is in the right place.. maybe thisspot is not the best place to be going green.. ;o)

  3. I like seeing fields and lawns like this, all natural and creating a haven for wildlife.

    I hope you do get some shots of Niagra Falls, I'd love to see them. It is somewhere I've always wanted to visit. Maybe one day :)

  5. Hi Neva! Back to blogosphere after another busy (and annoying) week… ;)
    Loved to see the Green Green Grass of Home at Inverness... ;)
    The Japanese Lilac is superb, and Gilberto Gil (Brazil's Minister for Culture from 2003 through 2008) in Ravinia... amazing! ;))
    Thanks for your comments at Blogtrotter and have a nice weekend!

  6. It is pretty but it will soon go to seed and not be as pretty. It is good to see green. Our grass has a brownish tint to it. Not much rain. Looks like we are going back into the drought again this summer.

  7. great picture, beautiful green color.


I am glad you stopped in!
