Garden Thursday

Hello and Welcome to Garden Thursday with Virginger, Glimmer, Trooper and Fleur. BRRRRRRR!

It got way cold Tuesday night, Mum was happy since that means the leaves off this one tree will fall off, and they only seem to fall off after a really cold night. So that meant mum had to work lots yesterday to get it all cleaned up.
 All those leaves on the ground, it is like the whole tree dropped its leaves in a few hours.
 Here is the nearly naked tree, it had lots of leaves on Tuesday.
 The messy patio and you don't see us on our bench! Mum has tucked us away since it is now so cold. We can peek to see what she is doing.
 
 The front, just as messy, but with the leaves from the maple trees.
 So mum worked hard, got the leaves out into the street, then she went back and mowed the entire yard to crunch up what was still on the ground, or the areas that she didn't blow the leaves off.
 The back later in the day, all those messy leaves gone. The green stuff mum wants to kill, she calls it ground cover and it is getting out of control.
The big maple tree still has lots of leaves on it. So mum will have more work to do once these come down. Although she hopes that she can take care of them by just chewing them up with the mower. She knows that is good for the grass. Returns foods to the grass.
That is all for this week. Stay warm. Love, Virginger, Glimmer, Trooper and Fleur.

Glad you girls are all tucked up and keeping warm and dry for the winter. Your mum has been very busy.

It's getting real cold here too. The mom was out trying to clean up the last of the plants and stuff. Though she still has some mums on our porch.

We had a really cold night last night--first thing our mom did this morning was get out the electric blanket (for herself, not us). She found the two regular blankets weren't enough. We're glad we have fur! Anyway, lots of leaves at your place! Mom does not miss that part now that we live in a condo.

Glad you guys are inside now hibernating the winter away.

We think it will be a toss up for Da Bears and Da Pack for Sunday! Good luck to both teams!

Wow, that was a LOT of leaves! Funny how all it takes is one frosty cold night and the leaves drop. We have a lot of leaves here, too, but it's so rainy, our Mom can't rake them up yet. And there are bunches and bunches of them!
