I decided it was time to mow my mini meadow the other day, but because of its small size, it is a strimmer that is used to cut the grass back. I liked the way it looked with its grass of different lengths, but the flowers had stopped flowering in all the heat and it was time to try and get it back to being a lawn again.
I also like the shapes and shadows formed by the taller grass.
The other half of the circle looking towards the island bed round the dead oak.
The path up the middle leads up to the pond area.
But all in the meadow isn’t as it should be, can you see the mole hills?
The mole has gone mad! there are so many molehills here.
So many round the edge where the shorter grass is.
There were so many in amongst the longer grass, he was going to get a shock when all the grass was cut! He wouldn’t like the noise of Neil with his strimmer.
All cut, the grass will green up again in a matter of weeks, as long as we have some rain.
No mole hills to mar this side. Doesn’t the Stipa gigantea show up nicely, it did really well in all the heat.
But what did I spy this morning, 7 new mole hills!
I give up, I don’t want to, but might have to think about getting a mole catcher in to deal with my problem.
Will keep you up to date, in the meantime I just hope it will go away!
