Trimming the palmTrimming the palmIt's autumn here, so I spent all of Saturday in the yard doing cleanup work that reminded me of the typical autumn tasks in Minnesota... minus the raking of leaves.  We don't have any deciduous trees in our yard.  Our only big trees in the yard are peppermint trees that don't shed leaves (an evergreen willow with mint-scented leaves).  Instead of listening to college football games while raking the leaves, I was listening on the radio to games of Week 2 of the Aussie rules football season while trimming our palm tree.
