Rainy Wednesday At My Cottage


There wasn't a leaf in sight when I finished mowing the back yesterday. All of these fell overnight.


I'll take care of the longish grass in the front the next clear dry day.


I swept the front walk last night at 6:00 pm. I am the only person I ever see in my neighborhood using a broom and a rake. Everyone else uses those horrible leaf blowers. I'm enjoying this warm rainy day.


I still have geraniums blooming on the deck too.

I raked my leaves yesterday, and wished the neighbor next door wouldn't use the leaf blower EVERY morning. Yes, I believe we're a dying breed.

its always interesting in the fall when all of a sudden so many of the leaves literally just fall from the trees. its always a rainy blustery day that is the tipping point. kind of sad though too. it was a nice warm rain today.. i was out in it too. :)

I hate the noise....but it does help get the job done faster....sorry R!!!! I rake and he blows with the wind machine where I can"t get the rake....and with as many acorns as we have this year....and do we HAVE acorns....it was good to have the noisey thing going!!! But I do prefer the swish swish swish of the rake....and your garden is beautiful.....although a little leafy!!!!!

I'm a broom girl too with all our leaves Rosemary. MOTH thinks I'm crazy, but I find an hour behind the broom along our garden paths strangely therapeutic.
