Consider the grass growing
As it grew last year and the year before,
Cool about the ankles like summer rivers,
When we walked on a May evening through the meadows
To watch the mare that was going to foal…Patrick Kavanagh
Cutting the grass for the first time means summer has finally come…how nice you think! walking on the fresh green tufts…look closer though, have you disturbed some little habitat? some tiny home?
Oh well nothing’s permanent, they’ll find another..it’s life’s diurnal round…
It feels like summer this week and most of my planting is done…the lawn was cut today, even spears of grass, sea green…the above painting is from an ant’s viewpoint…they have them too you know…Watercolour on Arches Not Paper…
