One of the properties I maintain got yard of the month for July!

I'm so excited! It's really nice to have my work be recognized. I work really hard and something like this just encourages me to keep going.

Hey, Myname, great job. This is deja-vu all over again! I remember when you posted this before that one of your lawns won. You should be proud because you do great work.

And, yes, pics!

I'm heading out there Thursday to mow so I'll take pics then and post them Thursday night.

I was too excited to wait until then to post.

I did get "Yard of the month" last year too on a different lawn though.

Have you rescued or encountered any cute baby animals lately?

Yes. Several turtles, and tiny baby bunnies that were just so freaking cute. I thought of you when I came across the bunnies.

ETA: Oh and a little baby bird.

I did get "Yard of the month" last year too on a different lawn though.

Hey, this is getting to be a habit!

DD had baby bunnies born in her back yard. Mama bunny dug a hole and covered them with grass as if that would work for long! Good thing DD checked out what it was so she could keep the dogs away from them. Mama bunny came back at night and very early morning to feed them. After a few days they got restless and began to explore. Soooo stinkin' cute!

Glad you're looking out for all the little animals you encounter.

Total T/J but this is the little bunny that escaped his hole while I was mowing a few weeks ago. I have to put them back in the hole because they go and hide in the tall grass and I don't want to get them when I weed eat. So I have to collect them and make sure everyone is safe before I weed eat.

I let the client know about it because she has a dog and she gave me weekly updates on their progress.

However, I do have to admit that when I first looked at your subject, I wondered, "What is yard of the mouth?" Sigh. Time for new glasses, maybe?
