Ju and myself both like keeping the lawn a little high, so mowing only occurs once per month under normal circumstances. Lately however we've both been busy with other stuff, and it was bloody hot outside, so the lawn was left to fend for itself for at least 2 months. Today, there were clouds and a rather cool breeze, so I thought I'd do it.
Keep in mind that:
- the lawn isn't that big (400 square meters, give or take),
- something between one fourth and one third of it looks like this:

- I had mowed another quarter of it a few weeks ago as I needed something to use as mulch.
And the result is:
... And yes, I did step on both heaps to pack them a little.
