A Flake or Two


We had snow ... not a lot ... but enough to make everything look sugar coated.


... and before you knew it, it started to melt ...
 


 
The Ariculas are still not giving up. It's December, cold n' snowing.

 
It's a chilly, but beautiful season.

Leaf it Out!

My neighbour has a giant Robinia tree that drops its leaves for what seems like 365 days of the year.
99.9% of the leaves and twiglets miss their garden completely on their descent to earth and fall at the end of our drive.  I normally wait until after a really windy day (the weather, not following a dodgy meal!) before embarking on a fanatical sweeping session. I think our house is situated in some kind of space vortex, as the wind normally swirls them about & deposits them into nice, neat mounds easy to pick up.
This year however, I've lost track of the number of bin-loads I've swept up and in desperation I had to resort to using a big 'sucky-up' Vacuum. I'm not a gadget gal, I'm a hands-on kinda woman but needs must. I hope no-one was watching me though as I didn't realise that the bag had blown off as I hadn't screwed it on properly and only noticed when I turned round to see shreds of leaf deposit flying behind me. I managed to fit the bag on properly and then promptly forgot to zip up the bag closed ... DOH
I'm beginning to wonder if I've chosen the right occupation.

 
Why can't my neighbours grow Bonzia trees like my son's Horse Chestnut (pictured above), only a dozen leaves or so each year to tidy up.
