Gardening cartoon. Burning autumn leaves

Burning autumn leaves - cartoon

Seasonal gardening cartoon – burning autumn leaves

Cartoon about tidying the garden in autumn

Cartoon showing a gardener burning autumn leaves

The gardener is making a bonfire out of the autumn leaves that have fallen onto his garden during fall.
The burning leaves are making a lot of smoke, which is drifting across into a neighbour’s garden where it is making the clothes that are drying on the washing line dirty. The neighbour is putting the fire out by pouring water onto it. (Pouring water onto the fire may actually be making the leaves damp and thus more smokey, which in turn creates a possible further point to the cartoon, even though it’s an inadvertent one).
