Reel mower and garden sticks

Look what my thoughtful husband came home with the other day - yup, a reel mower; part of my anniversary gift from him (along with a generous gift certificate in my card). Said mower has been used a few times already and it works like a charm (I must state here that the reel mower will not be used for our entire property, that's way too much lawn).

Remember when Dave was picking all those sticks on the beach last week? This is what they are being turned into - painted garden sticks (you might have to click on the picture to enlarge if you want to see them properly). I got the idea from here. We still have a few more to add...

Angélique tulip from the garden.

I"m glad you're enjoying your reel mower! We love ours - Adam just sharpened it yesterday (they have kits at Lee Valley). And your tulip is gorgeous!
