The thing about the suburbs in the summer is the constant noise of the lawn mower and weed whacker. I swear as soon as the sun comes up someone it out manicuring their lawn--before breakfast. The last two nights it's been 9 pm and still we have the sound of mowers going. How do they see in the dark?
Don't get me wrong. I love warmer weather. I love to take walks and smell people grilling. Watch the kids in swimsuits running through sprinklers or using slippery slides. I love the splashes of color from flowers and bushes and the green- good lord- the green is so lovely in tone. Then there is the hum of frogs in the lake which will be shortly taken over by the hum of the cicada in the trees. Everything is so alive.
Except the darn lawn mowers, I have no patience for that annoying rattle and hum. There should be a law. Only mow on one or two days a week between the hours of 10 am and 6 pm. Maybe I'll write my lawmakers. What do you think?
