Things are almost back to normal here at the Boggy Thicket - or as normal as they'll ever be.
After delays due to mechanical issues with our new lawn mower, and a couple spots that were too wet to mow, I finally got the entire yard mowed at once.
It really looks pretty good.
I also cut a couple of new ditches to provide drainage on the side of our house where water has been standing for days after the recent rains. You would not believe how many mosquitoes that area generated. The area used to drain on its own, but the ground here shifts like an ocean tide in slow motion - what used to be higher is now lower and vice-versa. It looks like it ought to drain now, but we will have to wait for the next big rain to see how well it works.
