Deciduous

I like a nice evergreen. The wonderful scents, the sound of breeze through a pine needle. Having color all year round. A mountain covered in pines.

But deciduous trees certainly have many positives about them. Watching the buds bulge in the spring giving us hope that winter is waning. The wonderful shade they provide all summer. The fall color they may treat us to.

And then there is this……

Leaves 2

An instant fall time playground.

Leaves Phew, and I’m absolutely exhausted after all that raking.

Okay, I kid. I only added about 4-5 truck loads to this enormous leaf pile. Our little town has a drop off for leaves and such, there was probably a half acre of leaves there. All of the boys had a blast playing in them.

I even jumped in too. When’s the last time you jumped in a pile of leaves?

I cannot wait until our trees are large enough to produce large piles of leaves to jump in.

I could barely see the little guy. Now that is a pile of leaves! It's been a long time for me but my kids were having a blast with the mini pile their dad blew their way.

What fun! We are slowing getting more leaves on our backyard trees and the kids love it! I love the way they sound when you crunch them!

So maybe I shouldn't have looked at this post right now - or read all the comments anyway - I do see a cute littel boy in there, but what I REALLY see is a LOT of work. Guess what I've been doing all morning - raking leaves! WithOUT the help of a blower. Just good??? oldfashioned rake and trash sack. Now excuse me while I take a long warm bath to soothe my aching back. Oh, excuse me, I'm just dreaming - I have two kids to attend to - no bath for me. Just a "NASCAR" shower. Oh well.
