Metamorphosis Monday ~ Lawn

It’s time for Metamorphosis Monday hosted by Susan at Between Naps on the Porch.

Dear and I were at our home in Seattle for the last 10 days celebrating Easter with our kids and getting some things done around the house. While we were there it was time for the first mowing after the Winter lull in grass growth. So I’m showing the before and after shots that I took.


Don’t you just love the look and smell of a freshly mowed grass?! OK, Ok, truth be told we really can’t call this a lawn, it’s mostly moss and dandelions but all 1/3 acres of it is ours. Hopefully some day we can tear it all out and re-seed…


Dear and I are just back to our Condo in Southern California. We had some interesting flight challenges that put us in 2-1/2 hours later than we expected. Now I’ve got to replace my Seattle brain with my Southern California brain! Ejola!

To see some really great metamorphosis visit the lovely Susan at Between Naps on the Porch!

Photobucket is holding all my photos that I stored on their site from 2007-2015 hostage replacing them with ugly grey and black boxes and asking for a large ransom to retrieve them. It is a slow process to go through all my posts deleting the ugly boxes.

  1. Your green grass looks great (say that 10 times, LOL) We won’t even
    think about mowing here in Colorado for another month (it snowed
    this weekend) I an envious ! Hugs ~ Kammy

  2. Oh Ellen, this post makes me wish I had done before and after thatching our lawn. . it would have made such a good lesson post about making things less pretty for a better outcome. .
    I was wondering what side the missing plant is one .. north, south? That would help to know what to plant there.

  3. Good morning, Ellen! I love the before and after pictures!! It looks like you have put in some real work on the lawn.

    I am not a plant expert — sorry, I can’t help you with any suggestions. But I am sure others will! 🙂


  4. YOU SCALPED IT!! ayayayay!!

    just overseed and spread weed killer about a week AFTER you mow. Do that twice a year for 2 or 3 years and you’ll have a lovely lawn!! Our is really looking nice this year, you can really tell the difference in where hubby overseeded last year!!
