I Was Finally Able To Clean up The Front Yard

Even though it was a cold 40 degrees this afternoon, I was finally able to get the front yard cleaned up.  It looks so much better.  I also sweep leaves from my car port and driveway, thankfully there wasn't even the slighest breeze so I was able to get all deposited into the bin without them blowing away again.  I nearly filled the yard waste recycle bin with what I cleaned up.  I took advantage of the dry weather to install my plastic Christmas soldier on the lamp post that holds my mail box.  Most of the people here in the park have either the soldiers or snowmen and I see more of them appearing every day.  I have a big red weather proof bow I'll put out there too as soon as I find it.   The sunset was so glorious tonight.  I wish I could have been down at the beach to watch the sun dip into the ocean.  It would have been cold but beautiful.   Have a good evening........Linda & Gabi too

P.S. this was my third attempt at this entry this afternoon/evening, what's going on AOL ?

What nice pictures, I love the little flowers still struggling to survive.  I don't have cable or I'd watch the movie also, hope you and Gabi enjoy.

Looks like you had a very productive day.  You also got to see a wonderful sunset.  I agree, it would have been spectacular at the beach.  We had a very nice one here as well, and I was wishing I was 80 miles west in the mountains to capture it.  Oh well, there will come a time for both of us when we are in the right place at the right time.

looks like alot of hard work...but you are missing the before picture...maybe you could dump the leaves back out and scatter them and take a picture for us. Barbara

Great pictures.  You are more ambitious than I.  Though what I can do right now is a little limited.  What a spectacular sunset.
Hugs, Barb
