The scent of newly cut grass in the morning!
The final two weekends we have spent at our swedish holiday home. Even though we try to do most of the job ourselves, I must admit that we have hired a "gardener service company" that will take care of our lawns. It was actually a wonderful feeling to wake up to the sound of lawn mowers and edge trimmers yesterday morning. The scent of newly cut grass must be one of the most authentic feel of summer I can imagine! As you can see, the lawn is not a very well trimmed one, but we love it just the way i is! I have added soil and seeds to get it "all over" green.
The lawn continues through our forests stretching alongside the river on both sides of our garden. We want to keep it as is , since it functioned as a lane between two cities for centuries.
