At this time of year the notices go up that long grass on roadsides must be cut before it becomes a fire risk. Not only do people clear the verges they cut under their olives too. From early morning, I’m talking around 6 am, till lunch time we hear strimmers, its the signal summer is coming.
I’ve told you before Mr FF likes country music and the more stupid the lyrics the better. He keeps playing and singing along to In the Field of Opportunity its Ploughing Time Again, it drives me mad. Now he’s changed ploughing time to strimming time, it’s no improvement.
There are so many wild flowers in the orchard, I want them to seed before we mow them down so once again MrFF has cut paths through the long grass, we and the cats can get around easily, no wild flowers have been harmed.
