A Few Leaves in the Backyard…

Having a home in the woods with tall trees on and around the property is really great.  Really, really great…at least, that is what I tried telling myself as the fallen leaves piled up everywhere this autumn.  The photo above shows a small portion of our backyard with not only a nice covering of fallen leaves, but also a fairly full canopy of leaves that haven’t even fallen yet!  Luckily, I was able to get the assistance of my brother-in-law, Brian, and after a couple of long days of raking and blowing leaves, I think we have been able to rid our yard and gardens of most of the leaves.

So for now, I would say it’s still great living in the woods, even if it means a few days of aching shoulders and backs…however, we definitely want to cut down a couple trees sooner rather than later, so maybe we’ll have a few less leaves to deal with come this time next year!

  1. I love & appreciate this in nature – Maybe because in the neighborhood where I live – we don’t have many mature trees.
    I may be singing a different tune if I had to rake all of them though 😉

    • Haha, I of course really like living in an area that has big seasonal shifts, even if that means a bit of labor cleaning up after the trees!
