Our next door neighbor is an older lady who loves the natural Florida look. Unfortunately, it was causing our fence to tilt, and was making our already small yard even smaller. I brought out the hedger,  my shades, and went to work. Growing up in NYC, I didn’t have a yard. My yard was Central Park. I didn’t learn how to operate a lawn mower until I was in my 20’s. Now, I love yardwork. There’s nothing like being outdoors and working up a good sweat. The sense of accomplishment is visceral. Shockingly, I did not chop off a finger and except for a couple of mosquito bites, I am no worse for the wear.

Suck It, Weeds:

Mission Accomplished.
