A Few More Leaves, A Few More Weeks....
Half decent days for working outside are fewer as we enter in late November here in Toronto. While it was just above freezing yesterday, working conditions were dry at least. This makes a fall cleanup so much easier and almost enjoyable!
I visit Brian, my client, about three times a year and tidy up the back and front yards. The property located in the Greektown-Danforth area isn't large but being surrounded by trees, the area receives more than its fair share of leaves.

"Cut down hostas, cut down hostas...."
is my mantra every November. You can see the yellow
collapsed hosta mess to the right.
These lilac leaves dropped overnight after
last week's "flash freeze"; hence, there was
no appreciable fall colour for this shrub.
Lots of maple leaves to greet me on this sunny and brisk November morning.

I've planted many dozens of tulips, hyacinths, daffodils and crocus in the front bed shown above over the years so we should get another nice show next early spring.
A few more fall cleanups to show so bear with me, dear reader!
