Lovely clear day in this immensely beautiful land! Got lots of jobs done, chopped wood, pruned trees around the back of the house and cleared the house lawns and drive of leaves.  As the leaf blower had turned up today this meant that a job that took 8 hours last Sunday only took 3 and half today. The smell of autumn is in the air and we are having some of the best weather of the year. The pile of leaves for our leaf mulch is now enormous and should cover several of the beds we are currently turing our focus on.
