Predicted grey and snow went North and East for just a dusting of snow only on rooftops and no frost anywhere!
DH took advantage of this to mow/blow fallen leaves into the gardens. Here, he's finished with the fenced yard and now to be heading 'up on the hill'. (He's come in now and says he looks funny headless...)
Leaves are basically off the hedge rose by the house with sparrow(s) attracted to the rose hips.
And...at least for the moment...we aren't joining the throngs in creating "Black Friday" for retailers to come out of the red and into the black for their financial year.
