Carrot Artery

My neighbour on the adjoining estate has asked me to plug his new venture at the Goldmark Gallery in the market town of Uppingham. Unmitigated Travellers will have heard of this remarkable artcentric world, and now it has joined the blogosphere with a journal called, in true Goldmark fashion, Butchers' Hooks. I'll say no more, but I take this opportunity to remind Lord Carrot that he still has my Atco in his stable block. Held to Ransomes, you might say. I just hope that it has not become enriched with the Pleasing Decay patina that decorates the rest of his desmesne. Oh how I long for idle Saturday May mornings, thinking about that first cut of the year and the smell of freshly-cut grass under the cedars as...(get on with it. Ed.)

Surely this merits a link to the Lawnmower Museum in Southport; not been there myself though so can't comment on its collection.

That's one of the places I most want to visit EM. Just imagine. I wonder if they waft the scent of newly-mown grass through the air conditioning? I'll link it now.

Stroud in the fair county of Gloucestershire also has strong links with the history of the lawnmower and has a good display on the subject in its Museum in the Park.

I look forward to seeing Lord Carrot empty his grass box on a regular basis.

My first lawnmower here on Continental Europe was called Queen Garden. Very stately. All the wheels fell off which was very apt.
