When Your Leaves Are Turning And It Isn't Even Fall Yet
The part of the book that says Men Are From Mars must be correct. I looked out the front window to see the leaves on the front trees dark colors of gold and tan. Humm lack of rain? Nooo John got a bright idea that wasn't too bright. I love a neat yard with grass mowed and everything trimmed neatly. John finally bought a riding lawnmower and mows on time. Maybe he feels like he is back driving a tractor like he did in his younger days. I do what trimming by hand that I can a little at a time so I guess he though he was doing me a favor. He brought some of the chemical home that he has been spraying mesquite in the fields with and edged the yard with it. It killed the grass along the sidewalk but it isn't a pretty sight. Evidently the Ash tree's roots are not very deep and the chemical seeped from around the house and the edge of the house. The two trees are large enough now to make a fairly decent shade. I pray they aren't going to die but just lose their leaves.
