The Architect’s New Toy

When we were in Lake Como last year staying with friends, we espied a small ‘thing’ running around a neighbour’s garden.  After asking questions of our hosts we determined that it was a robot lawn mower.

Once we returned home, and the grass was beginning to sprout in our new garden, the Architect set about finding where one of these machines could be purchased close to home.

We found a stockist but unfortunately, they had never sold nor installed one of them and so after purchasing our new friend “COMO” we became the guinea pigs for the dealer.  And it took some re-jigging of wires, choosing another part of the garden for it to be ‘home’ before everyone, including the Architect, was happy with our latest purchase.

I wonder what he will buy next.

Thanks again to Cat at caterel  for setting me this challenge. She says nice things about me so do go over to see what she is up to.
Today I nominate Dor at Virginia Views.  Her blog posts are always entertaining and show a facet of life to which I am a complete stranger.

  1. I love the new toy but will not show this post to my hubby. He will want one and we don´t even have a lawn here in Spain!

  2. I love your new gadget Judith, Thank you for inviting me to participate in the five day challenge, but hope you will forgive me for passing since this would be the second time around in less than a few weeks. 🙂 It’s a fun challenge though and I am delighted you enjoy my little slice of life posts from Virginia.

    • Thanks for commenting. The robot mower is fun and we, and our guests, stand and watch it doing its thing. And of course, I understand about the Five Day Challenge Dor.

  3. A robot lawn mower? Come on, I also want one of those little cuties in my garden! 😀

    • It is cute and fun to watch. Our friends are amazed when it takes itself out of its ‘home’ and starts to mow the lawn. Thanks for commenting Lily.

  4. Knowing it’s going to be 96 tomorrow and the lawn needs mowing, I sure wish I had a robo mower!

  5. My sister has a robo vacuum . . . I’ll let her know about the robo lawn mower. Hope it doesn’t mow down your flowers!

    • We don’t have flowers anywhere near the lawn. And the Architect’s son has a robot vacuum cleaner – guess that’s the next thing we shall get. Oh dear, boys and toys.

So what's on your mind?
