The day started with a sudden 15-minute downpour. By 11:00, the sun was out. Due to the 4 nights of 20s weather in the beginning of October, all of the trees are dropping their leaves as the same time. No one is taking TURNS this year. *whine*
Ironic that, after all that freezing, today thru Friday will enjoy temps well into the 70s!! Then - the bottom falls out and I mean fall. If only I can get at least the leaves done before the cold, wind and rains come.
So today I raked and raked and raked. Then I wacked and wacked and wacked. Then I dragged the shreds and started mulching the ring bed.
It took me until nearly 5:00 pm to make all the piles and then shred up just the 6 HUGE piles on the driveway. (The pictures don't do justice to just how big and solid those piles were.)
I'm getting too old for this.
I 'discovered' cider this September and am a total convert. So much so, you might want to check out what's going on in the basement this month! (Click each step.)
Meanwhile, until that little experiment pans out, I'll just have to rely on the Brits. *sip* Ah! That's the stuff.
God save the Queen! :-D
