23. Leaves


Leaf litter is always an interesting subject.  Add an old stone wall to get double your money.

  1. Leaf litter is good on the forest floor, but not in a suburban garden. Not MY suburban garden at any rate. Which reminds me: I want to indulge myself with a (mini) mulcher this year coming.

    1. Mulchers are fine but only if you are doing leaves. I find the home variety quite useless for even the smallest twigs despite it supposedly being able to handles thin sticks.

      I don't really know why you bother though. I just put them on the garden as is and they work fine. I guess not so good if you want a tidy looking garden. I just let them all fall and sweep once - the autumn leaves that is. The pine needles and lillipilly leaves are a nuisance because they fall all year. I sweep them every few months.

The filmy veil of greenness

We crossed the border into Victoria cruising down a lovely timbered road before breaking into the rich dairy country of Gippsland. It is wonderful to see the land green after more than 10 years of very dry weather. But most of the state of Victoria is still drought declared.

Musing:
The Pasture by Robert Frost
"I'm going out to clean the pasture spring;
I'll only stop to rake the leaves away
(And wait to watch the water clear, I may):
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too.

I'm going out to fetch the little calf
That's standing by the mother. It's so young,
It totters when she licks it with her tongue.
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too."

The end

I retire from the workforce this week and to celebrate have decided to retire my current blogs and start afresh with a single consolidated blog - My Bright Field - to record the delights of my new life adventure.
If you are interested follow me over there.  I will still be Sweet Wayfaring and collecting Royal Hotels.  The delights I discover along the way will appear together with my gardens and towns where I live.
