A windy and wet weekend.

Leaf mould to feed the garden beds..

Leaf mould to feed the garden beds..

The vegetable garden was not entered today.Plans for seed gathering for an hour or so were abandoned.The weather is terrible.I had a quick look in the garden shed to collect some notes and not a step further.The only good thing i saw today,thanks to the wind and rain was some more fallen leaves for the leaf mould bin.Not to much more of them to fall.Maybe next week at the first opportunity i will get to give the bottom lawn a real fast mow.With this type of weather it is more like the clouds that need a good mowing.

I think leaves is one of the best for compost,sometimes sorry that i don't have some of big trees around.And then,from other side,,thanks,i don't have to sweep up them:)

I was involved in the switching on of the Christmas Tree lights in O'Connell St. this evening. At 5.30 the rain came down, really bad, the crowd was great, sang along with the bands and DJ. It was requested from the stand not to let the weather win, the crowd stayed, great fun, despite the wind and rain. Really buzzing there.
