This year the grass (mostly fescue) was turning brown, its growth stunted, in mid-July by the drought. I had only mowed the field twice in 2008 up til then. Then we had a few good rains, one of four inches from a tropical storm that passed through. I mowed the field in July after a rain and let it mostly grow from there. The result is some nice, tall sagey grass that ornamented today - a perfect, clear sky autumn day before much color has started showing around here.
