Halloween straw to mulch the flower beds for winter. I replanted a few bulbs that had already heaved, cleaned up some stray leaves, and went at it with my bale of straw. I tend to worry over things like this though. Is it too early? Should I wait for the ground to freeze? What if those daffodil tips get frozen? But then I realized, hey, it's just a couple of flower beds. It's not life and death, right? Well, maybe for the daffodils . . . .
