As the days get colder, I reluctantly head outside armed with my pruning shears & a rake. It’s time for the dreaded fall cleanup. The kids shooting Nerf pellets at each other conveniently scatter, It’ll take some creative bargaining & bribing to get any help from this lot. Even my dog takes a break from rolling in the fallen leaves and runs inside. It’s not a thankless task however, as I enter the garden, I’m greeted with the last blooms of fall.
