It is May 1st.  The grass is being mowed at the Holland estate, which is proper.  Barb Johnson told me it was in writing the grass not be mowed before May 1st because of the grape hyacinths and other flowers.  The hyacinths provide such a beautiful riot of color in the spring.  It almost looks like a purple carpet.  Some things do never change.  I wonder if it was mowed when the Reverend Holland lived there?

In other news and signs of reopening life, Subway is open again, for carryout only naturally.  Go grab a sandwich and support local businesses.

Happy May Day!  Stay safe, Hopians.
