It's not exactly sunny, and we didn't really make hay, but we did get some work done on this dry morning.
Actually the sun did shine yesterday, but we were busy. Since it was Veteran's Day and a no-school day, Jill requested that we have a little early Thanksgiving dinner for her and the kids. The grands will not be with us for the real Thanksgiving, as they are going to Colorado to be with their other grandparents and their father's family. So we cooked turkey and ate and played a very long game of Monopoly, where Isaac "Trumped" us all.
But back to "making hay" today. I raked leaves, very pretty leaves.
Now the leaves are off the lawn and are scattered in the planting beds for mulch.
I cleaned up the drifts of cedar droppings off the patio (again) and the lawn.
Those cedar droppings are now mulch for the garden path.
Tom cleaned up the driveway and the front walk.
The Full Moon Maple is just about finished with it's glorious show. ( The header photo is from that tree.) The leaves are in the planting beds here too.
Tom moved the last of his bonsai trees off of the display benches and out to a garden box, under a clothe, where they will be protected for cold winds and too much moisture.
Lastly, I planted a few allium bulbs for color next spring.
Then we went for a two mile walk before calling it quits for the morning.
Now, late this afternoon, the sky is very dark and the rain has arrived. They say we're in for another storm.
And more clean up, of course.
