After a day full of automata Saturday a fairly mild Sunday led to starting to groom the garden railroad. While the ground is still frozen it's a good time for an initial raking followed by some serious leaf blowing. It's problematic as the railroad is built under a bunch of cedar trees. The "needles" on cedars are notorious difficult to gather and remove. I have to admit that I have even used a vacuum.
There still is some ice around!
Automata is a creative blend of my life interests , engineering, art and woodworking.
