Usually when I mow the lawn at this time in November, I’m considering that it might be the last time I have to pull the mower out of the shed for the season.
Taking in the whole picture as I passed over the grass this weekend, I notice all the leaves still up on the surrounding trees.
And thought down on the lawn those leaves must come. Mulching/bagging mow to come, or leave them lie ’til spring.
That I will ponder.
Now, though, my dear wife Karen and I piled up the patio furniture and covered it for the winter.
And, yes, up from the basement came the shovels, one placed in the front alcove to be used on the walk and driveway, the other on the side covered alcove to clear that and the back deck.
Yes, snow can and has been the natural force to finally knock down those stubborn leaves. Just saying.
