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!
