I spent a couple hours raking up the hay in the backyard. With the rain prior to Halloween we laid down a base of hay to combat the mud. It did a good job keeping people's shoes dry and it also did a good job keeping the grass healthy. I raked the majority of it onto the perennial beds.
A number of our props have been loaded into their bins and put away, just a few more to go. They are predicting temps in the 60's this weekend so we have time to work on the yard before it truly turns cold. It also gives us more time before we turn on the furnace.
We received a lovely thank you note from one of our neighbors. That was a lovely surprise.
