It’s the first of November, and that means it’s time to look at my back yard and see what’s going on out there. Surprisingly, the grass is green and tall. It’s just that there’s a blanket of leaves over it too.
The tree yesterday’s acrobatic squirrel lives in provides a lot of shade for the backyard, which means it also drops a lot of leaves in the fall.
I tend to be natural with my yard work. Of course, that’s just my way of saying, I never seem to get around to raking leaves in the fall. I never seem to get my garden properly put to bed either. It’s still full of weeds and dead plants and tomato cages.
I did find a couple of gourds. That surprised me. They were volunteers from last year, and I never had any last year because of the stinking squash borer worms.
It was a nice surprise. One of the best things about the back yard right now, is just hanging out and watching Marley play with big sticks on the other side of the fence.
He has a lot of fun.
