Green Grass Growing

Sprinklers watering the grass

Watering the grass

“The grass has so little to do,
A sphere of simple green,
With only butterflies to brood,
And bees to entertain.”
— Emily Dickinson

“We may shut our eyes, but we cannot help knowing
That skies are clear and grass is growing.”
— James Russell Lowell

“No one thinks of Winter when the grass is green.”
— Rudyard Kipling

I love the smell of newly mown grass.  We do not water our lawn, so it does get dry and weedy in late summer.  This year June rains have kept it well watered.  In spite of the rain, I notice that some of our neighbors do keep their sprinklers going.  I liked the line created by these sprinklers, all in a row along the sidewalk.
