leaf mulch

Before the rain and wind came on Sunday night, I sucked up all the leaves in my front garden with my leaf blower/mulcher, then spread the mulch around my buddleia, rose bushes, lavendar and other more tender perennials.  Then, the winds came, and blew it all around, so I'll have to do most of it all over again.  But it's nice not to have to send anything to the landfill.


  1. What a crazy storm we had on Sunday! I am hoping to gather my leaves this weekend. We've had so much rain lately that the leaves are a soggy mess. Hopefully some sunny days will dry things out.

  2. Yesterday I spent a half hour picking up fallen branches. At least I'll have lots of kindling for the winter!

    I still have my whole back yard covered with soggy leaves, so I'm hoping for a dry weekend.
