The front is mowed and I scooped about 2/3 of the leaves in the gutter onto the lawn so they could be mulched in. I left the last batch to do later, I was getting tired. I always find a few oddball things during the first mow. This time there was an iris sprouting in the middle of the lawn, and in the turf near a garden. The iris will have been loitering in that spot for over 2 years after the front was dug up. Not sure about the garlic. I'll transplant both.

I've got the hang of using the Google Fit; when I start a project (and have to be carrying the phone with me, usually in a pouch) I pull up fit and tell it time for a new activity. It's always the same one, walking. It's nice to see that during the mowing I actually walked 2.28 miles in an hour and three-quarters.

I have so much brush to prune out this year, shrubs that were burned in the cold but may come back from the roots. The branchy stuff needs to come out or it will look awful when it starts to sprout again.
