Five o'clock shadow

I'm not talking about the face here. Our lawn is the subject. Ever since we have moved here Jeff has become obsessed with the idea of having a perfectly green lawn. And so going back to last fall he enlisted no small amount of chemicals as his ally in this quest. This spring the fertilizer came out again and again in generous portions (4 different kinds so far).

Wha-laa, the result is a lovely emerald green lawn. There is another side affect and it is that our lawn now grows so stinkin' fast! We mow it and I swear come needs another clipping. Seeing that Jeff is quite pleased with the green factor and because our lawn area is so small we just keep mowing.
