This is my final entry to Dawn’s Festival of Leaves. Today the lads who cut our grass came to clear off the fallen leaves. One has a big leaf blower and blows the leaves to the south edge of our property. The leaves danced across the driveway as if they were happy not to be left fading on the lawn.
Then the other lad comes with a smaller leaf blower and blows the leaves into the field next to us. This was a corn field until yesterday when the farmers came with their huge combine harvester and the corn was cut and harvested . So the leaves were happy to go into the field and add their compostable fiber to the earth of the field.
Finally here is our leaf free lawn. Our neighbours across the road have not removed their leaf carpet yet. But you can see the naked maple trees standing bare and waiting for the first snowfall.
