Rain Delay

The leaves have been beautiful this year. We had enough on the ground that we thought it was time to collect them and tuck them in for some garden composting.

Finally, we thought Saturday was the day. We put the catchers on the lawn mover and gave it a shot. Unfortunately, they were too wet from the week of rain. The last couple days won't help, either. We'll try again.

Meanwhile, we got in a little garden clean up on Saturday, until we decided it was time to go inside and warm up. I didn't clean up too much, though. There are some birds that like to scavenge around in the garden. There's still plenty of treasures for them to find.

Here is our post about composting in place last year.

Welcome November

It would have been a fine day for a little garden tending. It was only to the bench that I made it, though. A little viewing of the fall colors everywhere. No trimming or mulching. At least I'm on the better side of some little bug. How much I appreciate the views from the windows looking out now!
