|Our Yard---Photo taken today, NOVEMBER 15|
Can you believe that we can go from Fall to Winter that quickly and that drastically???? George and I have been busy working in the yard for the past couple of weeks gradually getting rid of all of those leaves.... We have a good system... I rake the leaves away from the edges and blow the leaves from the flowerbeds to the middle of the yard. George mows up all of the leaves in his mower bag and disposes of them on our compost pile... HUGE JOB for both of us ---but today we finished the entire yard (except for the pesky leaves still hanging onto some of the trees)... SO---we'll be doing it next week --at least part of the time. BUT--most of our leaves are DOWN....
As I've said several times, since we own a home with over 50 shade trees (which we love), those trees do drop tons of leaves... It's a busy time for us --but as I say frequently, it's GREAT exercise!!!!
There's still alot to do ---such as cleaning out flowerbeds and putting the Roses to bed for the winter... BUT--one big job is ALMOST over!!!!! YEAH!!!!!
NOW---please check out my Bird Blog from this morning if you haven't seen it. Click HERE. I don't want you to miss that blog post!!!!! My "Pileated with Attitude" is pictured there!!!!!
Have a fantastic weekend.... It's rainy and chilly here... More rain is coming on Sunday!!!!
