Our Fall Leaves in December
When everyone else is getting snow, we are getting leaves. They fall from the sky just as graceful and are 1000 times bigger than your average flake but, for some reason it's just not the same. Especially when you have to clean them up. Oh, I know it's all fun to jump in them and throw them at people (our version of a snowball fight). But after the fun's been had then it's good old Mom to clean it up. Yesterday I raked leaves for the 3rd time this year and decided to take some pictures. Well, in order for that to happen I had to move the entire pile into the sun because our trees still have enough leaves to cause shade. Hopefully by New Years they'll be all gone. Just in time to bloom up again in Feb. I miss the 4 seasons.
