We like to name things after people and places.
This ferry boat which took seventy plus garden bloggers from Seattle to Bainbridge Island last week is obviously named after a place, the city of Tacoma, Washington.
A few days earlier, we all visited Dunn Gardens, named for the Dunn family members who originally created the gardens following a plan developed by the famous Olmsted Brothers landscape design firm in 1915.

And now I’ve discovered that there is a lawn mower named after… ready for this?
What a nice name for a mower!
Thank you to Victoria of Victoria’s Backyard for the honor, or as she wrote it, “honour”. I learned of it through a comment on her blog.
I don’t usually have time to go back and read comments after I’ve left a comment, but this time I did. I must have been lead to do so by Dr. Hortfreud or maybe the garden fairies. Whoever, or whatever, drew me back to those comments, I’m glad they did.
I hope “Carol” mows well and faithfully for Victoria for years to come, always with a sharp blade and a clean cut..
Now, what shall I name my three mowers?
