Is a good leaf as long as I don’t have to mulch, rake or blow it into the woods.
Yesterday I did the second mulching ( I have mulching blades on my lawn mower that rips/shreds the leaves to smithereens.) I even have a new set of mulching blades waiting in the wings if I need them….I am so worth those expensive blades. Our lawn such that it is never needs fertilizer…between Chance and the mulched leaves we are set to go.
I have guesstimated that there will be ten mulches in total…unless it snows.
I can get it all done in about 90 minutes. Yesterday we used the blower to scoot all the leaves out of the rocks next to the house…that will have to be done at least three times before it is over.

I also had time to get the leaves out of the flower bed, my Marigolds are still looking pretty good. Good enough that I watered them probably for the last time.
Some have been nipped by the frost but the glass flower hovering over these must have saved them. I have been pleased with the sunny yellow color of these Marigolds and the Red Salvia was a hit with the Hummingbirds…plus the Salvia has reseeded itself!
I worked on the wood carved Christmas ornaments. I have completed 67…another 6 to go and then a few extras…because I will always need a few extra.
