Edge Trimmer

My father-in-law has this manual yard edge trimmer.  My husband  showed the Burritos how to use it  when we visited Dad a couple of days ago.
Children's curiosity is a great way to introduce them to  things like this one.
I like this kind of trimmer because  you do not need to charge it or  put string  in it to cut grass.  The next day after my husband showed   our kids  how to use the trimmer, we saw Dad's neighbor using their   manual  lawn mower which I found to be very neat and practical to use. I'd love to own  manual  lawn mower and trimmer because it is  convenient and cheaper to use.  You don't need  gas  to operate them and it's not  as noisy as the electric ones.
Link  with me every Friday through ColoConnection.  You can post any color that you like.

  7. I have one of those too! They really are much easier to use than the gas/electric one! Looks like your dog thinks it's a play toy! Enjoy the day.

  8. I think it's more fun to show kids how to use one of those than to actually use it!

  15. So cute. I need to send you the picture of Eloise up on the part of our roof that is accessible from the upper deck sweeping the leaves out of the gutter with her daddy. It was so cute. Your pictures always put a smile on my face. genie

  18. Wow, Rose - that edger really did make cool shadows!

    That thing also looks like a Medieval torture device, does it not?

    Good thing teaching kids weed control, takes a village to keep weeds at bay!

    Have a wonderful shadow sunday!

    Thanks for visiting!

  20. I'm too paranoid to allow my girl to use something like that without closed-toe footwear.

  21. Even with your simple tools, you put my attempts at lawn care to shame. Fortunately for my neighbours, I have very little lawn to care for. My story this week is called Culmen ’79.

  23. Hello.
    I have to admit, that trimmer looks like something from eons gone by! LOL
    It's fun watching the kids having a go, but I'm smiling at the puppy who seems to think it's play. Nice photos. Thanks for sharing.
