Yard report

I am done raking, blowing and mulching…D.O.N.E. 

The yard October 21

The mower was cleaned up and put away for the winter.

The weather has been beautiful, perfect for the last few jobs in the yard.

We washed another window…three more left to do.

Purple leaf Sandcherry

The Purple Leaf Sand Cherry is putting on its fall show.  Most of this shrub was a goner last spring, I cut it back and it made an okay showing after that.

I put some bleach and water on the patio pavers last week, now it is raining…I hope they get all cleaned off.  If not I have another plan…that involves Oxiclean  a scrub brush and a bucket.

Only a few things left on my October list!

Pumpkin Bells

I got out the pumpkin bells and a few other fall decorations.

  3. Hooray for you. Wish I could say the same for here. I just finished a mow/mulch and my front yard looks like I never touched it. Too many leaves still on the trees.

  5. Looks good. You've certainly done your part in getting everything ready for the winter months. We've still got a little bit of fall first, though. Except in Minnesnowda. Winter is always much longer there. :-)

  6. Good job! We can all rest now that you have all that yard work done. I need to look at my patio for a good cleaning as well, kind of green at the moment from all the rain making them mildewy. Now you can get out a good book and do some reading, or maybe do some baking for the season.

  7. Enviously green here. We're finishing up a very windy and rainy 24 hours here. If I could figure out how to insert a photo into the comment box, you'd be able to see the sea of yellow - probably a foot thick - that blankets our yard.

  8. Yeah the yard is done - that sounds like a lot of work... here I suppose I could pick up dead pine needles but I usually just rake a little in the spring :) Fall is here - I am not crazy about the limited daylight hours after I get off work - hard to get some things done including fun things!

  12. Looking forward to putting my lawn mower up too, but probably not for another month. Like your hanging jack o' lantern.

  17. Your yard looks wonderful....better than mine does during the growing season. I probably won't mow again but then around here you never know.
