ALTHOUGH I WAS HAPPY to have the lawn service here yesterday (they gathered, shredded and piled the leaves I’ll use this winter), my cement replica of Venus de Milo was not. Thanks to a little accident with a tractor, she now has a more antiquated look:
Nate, who has mowed this property hundreds of times, finally slammed into Ms. Venus. She plunged off her plinth, landed face-down, and, well, off went her head. In hindsight, I wish I’d moved Venus into the Pool Garden, where two other statues reside, and where tractors aren’t permitted.
