One Man Went To Mow

Days sheltering in place: 41
Spare rolls of toilet paper left: One

Event that isn't happening today: Wales Comic Con where I was going to have my photo taken with and meet the entire main cast of "Bloody" Torchwood. That's right, Capt. Jack, Ianto, Tosh, Gwen, Owen & Kai. It's very rare that they are all at the same location and this was going to be it. My wife has met Capt. Jack and Ianto before but I have only met Tosh.


One man went to mow, went to mow a meadow,
One man and his electric lawnmower, spot,
Went to mow a meadow

We jokingly call part of the garden where most people would have a nice lawn 'the meadow" because that's where the wildflowers grow - which is a polite way of describing "weeds". Of late the "wildflowers" have gotten out of hand so after a photo session to record them for posterity today was mowing day.

If you stand far enough back and take your glasses off so that everything is out of focus it actually looks like we have a lawn in our garden while I know that really it is just a lot of weeds. Still I'm thankful to have a garden in the current situation.
