If you are a traditionalist, you may be appalled as you as you see the track I take as I mow. You see, I can't bring myself to mow down delicate wildflowers so leave patches (a quilt term for sure) of them all over. I could never understand my compulsion to do this until the day I mentioned it to my mother. She said your father could never mow over the spring violets and left them growing in the lawn.
Well, there it is. It's heredity and you know you can't do a thing about what you inherit, you just have to live with it.
