we could hear the leaf pick up truck from two streets away
oh no... they are here already !!!
we have an english walnut tree in our back yard
that doesn't drop its leaves until a day or two before
or sometimes the day of the city leaf pick up.
every november, late into the month, it's the same story.
we cross our fingers and hope that
a strong wind will blow all those danglers down.
this past weekend was beautiful.
we had the perfect mix of sunshine and cool temperature
for working out in the yard
...and that was just what we did
(actually, it was mostly ian...because i was on simmering soup duty)
saturday and sunday afternoons were spent
raking, carrying leaves out to the curb
and literally urging the remaining leaves to fall.
come on leaves...fall already !!!!!
poor harlow !!!
he had to be super patient for his afternoon walks.
most of the leaves (at least two thirds) made it to the curb...
and no...the leaf truck didn't come down our street,
so we have a few more days (i'm hoping...)
wishing you all a wonderful start to your week.
