this plum summer storm
and my avocado lawn 
to smother the sky.

With these persistent warm, humid, rainy days, our lawn is growing out of control.
It seems like only a couple of days back I last mowed it, now it is as high as an elephants eye.
Not a small lawn, it requires a non-trivial expenditure of gumption & grunt to do the job.
If I had my way the whole thing would be a concrete putt-putt golf course.
That’s not true. It looks really nice when freshly mown. And that smell of cut grass takes me back to my childhood like a zipline.

Seriously though, manicured lawns in the Australian climate?
Afterwards, sitting on the verandah with a cold beer, I can almost hear it as it resumes regrowth.
