Cold winter air freeze dried the leaves of the deciduous trees which line the streets of Diamond Bar. Now her cold breath blows the gardener's gold in the form of leaves piled high on streets and sidewalks.
This is the time of year when wanna be gardeners can become real gardeners- on the cheap. Good gardeners rake up their own leaves to spread as an insulating layer on their own flower beds. Great gardeners use this time to get friendly with the neighbors. Shake their hands. Explain how much it would mean to you if you are allowed to sweep off the sidewalk and street in front of their home so you can turn the brightly covered littering into gardener's gold- compost.
