Garden Ornament

Darlene gave this to me on Sunday. Isn't it fabulous? A little reel mower to put in the garden (well, by the front door)! She said it reminded her of her childhood - it reminds me of mine as well (though it was the NEIGHBOR who used the reel mower).

I say it reminds me of the thing that gave me blisters and is now collecting dust in our garage since it has been replaced by a gas powered mower.

Nothing says "mowing" to me quite like a Briggs & Stratton. The smell of fresh mown grass and gas fumes causes a wave of nostalgia to come over me. I'm tearing up just writing about it.

And I'm going to comment on the pretty Lamb's Ears *behind* the mower. So sweet and fuzzy!

Thanks for the reminder - I've been wanting to add Lamb's Ear to my border...
