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……
An instant fall time playground.
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?
