We have beautiful trees- three Red maples
and one I do not know what it is!
They provide lots of shade along the side
and in front of the house.
We also have three evergreen trees-
one large pine and three crepe myrtles!
BUT – THIS TIME OF YEAR – ” LEAVES”!
So – we decided to blow them into a pile along the sidewalk.
And then we would pick them up and stuff into bags.
It was chilly – around 38 degrees – but the Sun was out –
blue skies – white puffy clouds –
a good day to rake and stuff!
I had my blower and pushed the leaves onto the sidewalk
Note: This same sidewalk we have to shovel snow when we have it!
It runs in front of the house and along side about 150 feet!
Did I tell you I really do not like snow and ice! LOL
It took us about one hour and we filled up SIX stuffed bags!
I had already done THREE bags a week ago!
The yard was green once again –
I had mowed the second leaf fall early last week
I do this to mulch them up and put nutrients
back into the ground!
Now – to the present – Christmas lights are up
All three trees are decorated
All the mangers set up and the little lighted churches placed
The inside decorations are done
the storage tubs back in place in the garage
And for twenty four hours it rained!
I went out front to gather up the paper
and there it was –
” ON TOP OF MORE LEAVES “
The rain had brought down more leaves!
Thank you for reading Papa’s World – where friends meet the family.

The leaves are all wet from the rain –
There are still leaves( about 20 % ) on the trees.
We will have to wait to blow them but I also am thinking
I will once again mow and mulch them!
We still have time – being retired – you have choices
Bundle up – go outside
mow or rake or gather
or just stay in – turn the fireplace on
turn on the lights on the trees ( NO LEAVES THERE)
grab a book and just relax
That is what I call
LIVING LIFE DOING IT MY WAY . BLOG!!!!!

With trees comes shade and “LEAVES”!
