Time to clean up!
This job usually gets done twice a year.... spring and fall. When my sons were little, they would love to get up on the roof to "help", meanwhile I would dread finding one of them in a crumpled heap on the ground. It never happened, thank goodness.
Last November an early winter put an end to the usual fall cleanup. We didn't even rake the leaves as we were in Florida, and came home to everything covered in snow!
This gooey, black, toxic smelly stuff includes a couple of dead birds... some flakes of brick from the chimney... some unidentified seedlings starting to take root.... indestructible beanpods from the Catalpa tree...
.... and this is just a small portion of the haul. YUK! This is my part of the job (the easy part), shovel it into bags ready for yard waste pickup day and hose down the patio afterwards.
