......went to mow a meadow!
I wish I could get lines in my lawn like that!
Mind you I do have a Flymo..
Good pic though!

Johnny, after flymo - use a stiff yard brush - walking back and forward with the brush along side of you, apply pressure with the brush being used against the bristle's normal direction of use, you will soon have the lines you are looking for. Thanks Ron, another stunning picture !.

Thanks JJP for that advice. I'll try that on the next cut!

It`s a great pity that the three bowling greens behind are being neglected.

I remember raiding Mums bread bin to feed the ducks through the railings on the LHS of this photo. Must be nigh on 60 years ago!!!
