    You know how it's almost hypnotic to stroke a pets fur? well I do that with the grass...
    I was lying down outside and just stroking the grass, it felt so great between my fingers:)
    the winter just thawed here, and it's been in the 20's all week, it's so nice to have a lawn :D

    I was confused for a second, but then I remembered you are on the metric system. I do the same thing from time to time... it also feels good to walk through autumn leaves barefoot.. as long as the leaves aren't too hard.

    We_All_Shine_On, you kick ass, keep it up!
    you've got to be the most 'hippy' person on these fora, it's like you just walked out of 1969.
    I would give you some more reputation but it says that I need to pass it around first.

    NAMASTE


    I have read in many eastern text books that walking barefoot on the grasses gives us life energy charge.I try to do that every day.

    I love watching the grass wave as the wind flows through it. And the whispering sound it makes. Ahh, so beautiful :) It's too bad my lawn gets raped every week by hired gardeners.

    I find lawns to be abhorant, and praise of their existence shouldn't be tolerated. While we do have grass in our yard, it is accompanied by a number of other species of flora, which are erroneously considered weeds.

    I was growing 'weeds' in a leftover pot I had, they just appeared there. My weedpot. I watered them, and also poured bongwater and left over tea in there too. They were doing good. But those damn gardeners whacked em. They were in a pot for christ's sake! :shakeshead:

    Actually, if you pet a frog between the guys you can hypnotize them. I've done this and it works!

    Im new to this forum and Im glad I came across this thread. I am a turf student at rutgers University, I feel the same way about the grass as you all do. My family doesnt understand my choice of profession though, most are business people and nurses. Its hard knowing that I am looked at a little strangely in my family but I know I shouldnt care because I enjoy what I do. Just remember, if it werent for the different species of grass, soil, and other plants, there would be zero existance of life on our planet earth.

    I like that.

    The other day I was walking around barefoot and I found a patch of mossy grass... it felt so beautiful.
