One of the things that needs to be done in the Fall is to get the beds ready for the winter.
I have to admit that even though it is a ton of work and my back just wants to get on a plane to Tahiti about half way through the process, I sort of, kind of enjoy it. It appeals to the obsessive/compulsive/destructive part of my nature. I like to know that the beds are all set to hibernate for the winter. I like the fact that beds that are cleaned out are easier to blow leaves out of.....and we have A LOT of leaves.
And I also like cleaning the beds out because I get to employ this.....
"OOOOOO, look at the shiny serrated blade Daddy. Do you think it will cut things? Can I have one Daddy, can I pleeeeeeeeeeeeze?"
Yes, this is an old knife from my kitchen and it is my weapon of choice for Fall clean up. It slices through most anything. Makes life a lot easier I can tell you. And if I need to work off some "mad" or frustration it is sooooooo satisfying.
to looking like this, in so sort a time. At least it seems short to me although the time lapse is several months.
Ummm, my mother-in-law gave me this statue, which used to sit in their living room. I put it in the garden. I hope she never notices because I don't think that is where it was supposed to go. But I like it there.
It goes without saying that this is a non-working poo receptacle.
