1040. Brown Blanket

Spring lawn...
last autumn's leaves
uplifted.

Link with 1039: Mulch.

[Shortly after the snow melted this year I noticed something on our front lawn. It was like a light brown blanket suspended above the new grass that was springing up. The brown blanket was the layer of leaves that had fallen last autumn that we had never got around to raking up.]

nice sense of passing time
(plus the sign that your level of gardening diligence is about the same as mine) :)

this is why I quit raking years ago. :)

I really like this one because of the feel of movement it presents.

Floots: I suppose we're not so green. :-)

Andrew: Waste o' time, eh?

John: Thanks.

Aurora: Thanks (not sure if you are being sarcastic or not). ;-)

nature has its way of dealing with things regardless of our efforts (or lack thereof)
nice!

Masago said...

Pat: Indeed.

Polona: Well said!

Pamela: *Big smile* (although it'll be on the other side of my face in another six months).
