Leaves Beautiful Leaves

November 16, 2010Katie

My folks are here from Michigan. It’s mid-November and we’ve had the most glorious fall ever.

By that, I mean it’s actually lasted more than a week.

Sunday, we took advantage of the beautiful day and went outside to rake leaves.

My dad used the blower and blew things into a general area.

Mom, Kayla and I raked them into large piles.

The boy mowed up the stragglers.

And I might add, he looked mighty joyful about doing it too.

Even the dogs joined in.

Although, they really didn’t contribute a whole heck of a lot.

Incidentally, a white dog and wet leaves tend to make for a messy face.

Then it was time to bag them…but we opted for a better solution.

One spunky redhead in a giant trash bin can pack in a lot of leaves.

I truly, truly love fall.

Especially while they work, and I take the pictures.

    I love it that everyone else is in jeans and sweatshirts, and "the boy" is in a tank and shorts! We've used the trampled garbage bin method, too!

    Could Kayla's hair be any more beautiful amid the beautiful fall colors?

    right now my leaves are blowing and swirling back and forth and down the street. Those big fruitless mulberry leaves will all drop when a big freeze comes, maybe tonight, and leave a huge ring around the tree. then I'll rake.
