This elderly lady met them at her door with curlers in her hair, and with a bottle of foundation makeup. She wasn't sure if she should answer the door because she, "didn't have her face on."
She offered to pay them and Travis told her it would be their pleasure to take her leaves. They didn't rake up all of them. Only 3 gigantic lawn bags full were raked up.
Mica was a great help, and Isaak's kind of moved into that stage where he's realized that helping isn't as fun as it used to be. It cracked Travis up that Mica wears his sweat band and wrist guards when doing any yard work.
While they raked up 3 gigantic lawn bags full of oak leaves, I sucked up more Maple leaves in our driveway, leaves in our backyard, processed them to lay under the bushes.
I started sucking up part of the neighbor's leaves considering the fact that they'll blow right into our yard anyhow. They don't do anything with their leaves until they are all off the trees back there.
I throw leaves down in replace of mulch and with compost in the fall. Travis is using the Oak leaves to lay over the strawberry bushes in the winter. We'll save more leaves for the spring.
Do you refer to this season as fall or autumn?
