The first raking of the season took place today. Exactly half of the back lawn is now cleaned, with a tidy pile of (mostly oak) leaves in the midst of it. It was also a day for the birds. The raking must have turned up something of interest to them, because several of them spent the afternoon pecking at the clean half of the lawn. There were a few hummingbirds about, too, feeding at the handful of flowers that are still blooming. The wind has settled down to a soft breeze, making it unlikely that my tidy pile of leaves will be re-dispersed. Of course, the cat might decide to play in them. She will probably want to spend much of the night outdoors, as it has grown balmy once again. I'll probably join her. Gotta guard that leaf pile.
