Oh my...how things have changed in a year. I was full of energy and did a few things around the house before I went out. Fall is coming fast and there's so much to do in the garden. I wanted to get a "jump" on the cleanup this year. The lawn cart was waiting by the door....the sun was shining......the neighborhood was buzzing with the sound of chainsaws, I was ready. Donning my favorite denim jacket...out I went and started in. I decided to clear the garden of lawn ornaments that I usually leave out for another month. Back and forth I went....carrying these things to their storage place. Ahhhhhh......the fresh air filled my lungs as I proceeded. Everything in the front yard is put away and now on to the big chore.....cutting things back and pulling things up. I felt badly when I dumped Martha Washington (geranium) into the compost heap. She performed well all year and now she's pooped :) I did a few things prematurely, but I have to work when the "spirit moves me." I put down my clippers and wiped my brow. A whole lawn cart full. Whew! Gardening is a workout. I rested a bit and then decided to come in a take it easy and write this post. Now, looking out the window....I start to feel that I might just call it a day....and eat a pumpkin donut :).
