Preemptive Leaf Gathering
FTLComm - Tisdale
Yesterday I spotted a neighbour in her front yard and to my delight she had taken the leaf gathering process to another level. The leaves on this little bush were persistent and had turned colour but were clinging to
|the twigs. She got her bucket and was picking off the leaves so that if and when
they did fall to the ground she would not have to reach down and pick them up.
As we talked about the way the trees changed colour this year she explained that she was annoyed with this little bush and wanted to trim it back even smaller next spring. And, yes, before I left her I reached up and removed the last leaves from the top centre of the tree for her.
