We have lots of trees because they provide shade, oxygen, and they’re lovely. They also offer the Munchkins entertainment, and Ivan has lots of good places to pee, even when it’s rainy. “Look, Ivan, here’s a tree; go potty.”
The second weekend I mowed and then mulched around the trees with the leaf mulch. Ivan and Dasa came out to inspect after I finished.
The next weekend the Munchkins watched over my progress as I raked some more, even as the leaves continued to fall. The last large Maple tree is slowly shedding its leaves. They will soon be knee deep around that tree, but Ivan and Dasa are always willing to help. I don’t know how I’d manage without them.
Ivan rests after a long day supervising yard work.
