Five hours' worth of work later, I can say that the yard is more or less winterized. Took out the Lilac with a minimum of injury to myself. Took out the big rosebush in the front bed. Pulled out the annuals and trimmed back the perennials. All that I need now is some mulch to put over everything.

What did this net me?

7 bundles of branches
3 trash bins of yard waste
2 chapped hands
1 set of shears with very dull blades
4 different kinds of seeds for next years plantings (marigolds, cosmos, a purple thing that looks sort of like a cattail, snapdragons in a variety of colors)
1 small loaf of banana bread from Raphaella.

Interestingly enough, I got more satisfaction from this than a normal day in the office.
