garden shears

Today it's cool and cloudy, sometimes a slight rain. In the afternoon I went out to the garden. Maybe I'd weed the garden?
I found the lawn need to be mowed but unfortunately we have run out of some essential refill for our small mower now. So I decided to try the garden shears.

 The traditional Japanese garden shears are, like other traditional tools, quite useful implement ... if we know how to use it.
(It's big ... the handles are about 50cm long)

I've never handled them well but wanted to learn. It's not easy to use them for a beginner, especially using them to cut soft grasses. But after 1 hours of trying I thought I've learned how to handle them ... not enough at all but at least some :)

(Quite imperfect result but I was rather satisfied XD )
