Picking up Leaves - 18/10/2015

The arrival of Autumn signals the start of the neverending task of clearing the garden of fallen leaves.  

Keeping on top of this ensures that any leaves that have fallen into the pond are removed quickly to avoid them decomposing and turning the water stagnant.

With a huge tree hanging over the garden
there is always plenty to pick up each day!

My cat seems to enjoy
watching me hard at work.


  1. Leaves did for my parent's pond, which had formally been a home for newts and toads

  2. Your cat looks like a boss:) You've done a great job as I see. My garden lacks my hands now, as I'm visiting my mom.
