CLEANED UP

SWMBO is happy.  Our neighbors are even happier.  A handyman came and cleaned up our front yard yesterday.

Behold the Before and After photos.













It looks better.  

For awhile.  

But unfortunately there are still leaves on the trees.  

Ready to fall.

For the price we paid, I'll be the handyman for them.

Of course, you could have left them to carpet the ground with multicoloured beauty. They would have disappeared of their own accord......eventually.

Catalyst/Taylor said...

That was MY view. The boss disagreed.

Judy said...

Every year, while cleaning the leaves, I say "next year we are going to hire someone" but then that's what I say the following year while cleaning up the leaves.
Nice looking place you have there.

Phil Perisich said...

I was expecting pictures of you clean shaven.

Catalyst/Taylor said...

Not until spring, Phil.

Catalyst/Taylor said...

Thanks, Judy. We were lucky to find it. (Except for those damned leaves!)

Steve said...

Leaves are a pain in the A**, though they look nice on the trees.

Catalyst/Taylor said...

Agreed.

I had a neighbor so nuts he would catch them as they fell.

Catalyst/Taylor said...

SWMBO just told me I need a long stick with a nail on the end so I can pick them up one by one!

The Bug said...

I like the leaves on the ground better :)

I really like that house. And I'm sorry, I agree with the Bug. ;-)

Catalyst/Taylor said...

Bug and Susie - You're two gals after my heart.

Your place looks great either way! I understand your neighbors concern. When we lived in the woods we let nature takes its course. I still hung up on the idea of a "handy man." Grab that rake laddie and go work up an appetite and or thirst!

Stephen Hayes said...

I don't know why but its enormously satisfying watching someone else sweep up your leaves. I did it for years but never again...hopefully.

Catalyst/Taylor said...

I do not have to clean up the property to work up a thirst. That comes naturally!

Catalyst/Taylor said...

I totally agree, Stephen. I got spoiled when we lived in Phoenix and had a yard man.

They sure know what to do... and are probably much faster than I was and still am...:-)
