Over the course of the winter, this corner had piled up with tumbleweed. I added the Christmas tree back in January during our inside clean up, which was subsequently covered up by more tumbleweed. I have been DREADING cleaning all of this up, along with the other junk that blew into our yard over the winter.
But today, Jean let me know of a non-Christmas Christmas Miracle! Some nice people who were helping the elderly neighbor, cleaning up her yard took care of all of the tumbleweed back here! They left the tree, but that is totally fair. 5 minutes with my saws all took care of it nicely. We do live in a good place for things like this. 😀
