Leave raking, general clean up, other spring signs

   It's amazing how much junk is left behind after the winter months. You don't notice much until you go outside and start raking all the leaves that have spread across your lawn from last fall and winter.
   Roadsides aren't the only places revealing debris. So are many yards. I wonder where all that stuff comes from.
   Papers partially disintegrated, empty bottles and cans-not too many of those so far-and all of those leaves that have blown in from other yards and vacant lots.
   This time of the year everything looks so gray, so lifeless. But as the saying goes, March winds give way to April showers that bring May flowers.
   Some color outside can't come soon enough for me. Time to begin the annual spring clean-up.
