Most of the trees in my yard have lost their leaves, but this maple in my neighbor's yard is still providing a bust of golden color. I raked up a big pile for my cousin's little girls to jump in
when they came yesterday for a visit. Later in the afternoon after leaf jumping, playing with Emma, going for lunch, and visiting the park, they thought it was great fun to help gather the leaves into a big barrel and roll it to the edge of my property so I could then dump it into the woods. Who knew? Somehow it's never that much fun when I'm doing it by myself.
One last photo . . . last week I snapped a photo of this impressive pumpkin outside a local breakfast/lunch spot. Pumpkin pie anyone???
