My friend, The Heathen One, worked hard for hours and hours yesterday, and all the leaves are gone, for a minute!
Just had to go out this morning and get some pics for sharing, and documenting that it really did happen!.
|Oh yes, see all those leaves still on the Crepe Myrtle in the foreground, and the butterfly bush near the porch!|
Though soon all will be grey and brown, the sun is shining and showing a certain bareness around the cottage today. I'll get used to it, probably, or more leaves will cuddle in the corners again to take the sharp edges off my environment again.
The house plants are doing fine in the "hot box" out on the front porch. But I do miss having their cheerful green and colors in the house this winter. Wonder if I can continue to live with them outside all winter.
