Suddenly, (and it was just over night) and we’ve got bare trees in the neighborhood. Completely denuded, and leaving me feeling just a little taken aback, just a little bereft. Too soon! Oh, for heavens sake, we were just enjoying the beautiful fall colours, and now they all get stripped away. Bare branches that I’m not ready for just yet.
Those bare branches bring a certain anxiety to the next few days, as I feel the pressure to hurry scurry to the allotment to clean up the rest of it. It must be cleared off by October 15, or the city claims the right to “take away” your plot and put it up for grabs on the waiting list. Yikes. As usual, September went by way too fast this year!
What’s that saying? Do what you can and let the rest take care of itself? Ha!
