Autumn returns

We thought we’d finished with autumn when the first snow fell. Actually, all that the snow did was pause autumn until the thaw. Once spring came and the snow melted, the leaves that had fallen from the trees were free to start blowing around the garden again.

The leaves blew into the carport and collected there. They blew into the house each time we opened the doors. We also picked up leaves on our shoes and brought them inside with us. We found leaves everywhere in the house, even in the bathroom and bedroom.

Action was required, so out came the grass rake and we cleared the lawns again. Out came the dustpan and brush as we collected the leaves in the house and put them in the bin. It’s now sorted, until autumn returns, in the autumn, that is.
