It just so happened that we bought a second yellow tractor for the front yard and it, too, has a mind of it's own. It was during that summer three years ago I read with great fascination a book called The Time Traveler's Wife. Oh wow, what a great imagination the author displayed in her writing. I was completely taken by her idea of time travel. Even the movie was well constructed, but of course, didn't compare to the depth of the characters in the story. In no time at all I had named our water tractors Henry and Alba for the two time travelers in the book.
Now the season is ending but once again Henry and Alba are fast at work, doing their best to keep our fescue grass green and fall flowers blooming.
