The cooler weather has us enjoying working in the backyard

BackyardAutumn2021_mAs summer turned to autumn, Brenda and I found ourselves enjoying a few more evenings and weekends walking around and working in the backyard. Last week it was cleaning up “the mound” (although we have a few) and getting it ready for winter.

I dug out some deeper rooted plants that had spread and planted a couple of new plants, while Brenda used her new saw, chopped and tilled (below). The still damp ground was the perfect time to work on the mounds  as they are mostly hard clay soil. Standing back after a couple days working, I’m not sure it looks all that much different? Just maintenance I guess?? (but we still enjoy it)
