Fall Leaves

Fall is Fall because of all of the leaves that fall from the trees this time of year. The colors are absolutely beautiful before and as they fall from the trees. Our neighborhood is lined with numerous Oak and Maple trees of many varieties making for a rainbow of trees this time of year. But as the season states, they fall. 

My husband and son raked all of the leaves in the front and back yards and swept them off the patio. These are pictures from the very next day. Oh yes, they fell! 

My son looked out the window, put his hands on his face in a way that reminded me of the boy in Home Alone, and said "Oh no! Not again!"

So off they went to sweep and rake again. When finished, they were tired but relieved. And my daughter reminded us that there are reasons to enjoy the fallen leaves...
