Even though it is starting to get hot and humid up here on the mountain I think this is one of my favorite times of the year, mainly because of the tall wheat like grass. I absolutely love to go and lay in it and just listen to the wind sweep through them. There is nothing as lovely as the sound of wind rushing across a field.
As long as you don't mow the grass it pretty much stays up till winter, turning this wonderful light brown color. Since we are having our wedding up here on the mountain, I had the idea of keeping the grass all around and just mowing out a large opening where we will be having the reception and pathways to apple trees and different areas. I think not only will it be a great way to get people to the best trees for apple picking, but it will look really beautiful as well.
I think the only thing I really have to worry about are bugs, but hopefully there won't be too many around come October. Anyone ever try any of those Off Candles or any other non spray bug repellent? I'm curious if they work all that well.
We are trying to make a bit of a push on the house this week, so please forgive me if I am absent for a couple of days. I think I should still be able to post fairly consistency but just incase not I wanted to make sure you knew where I'd disappeared off to.
How's your Tuesday going?
