"Colors and Leaves......"

I took this photo of the sunrise a few days ago. I thought the richness of the orangey sunshine was spectacular!


In moments, it had changed to a more buttery yellow......


I took this because of the rising sun, but am using it to show you the lack of leaves piled up in front of Rob's and our house.


This mornings view of the front yards. I blew leaves last Friday from our sides and front yard and Rob spent hours on Sunday bringing leaves from his entire yard to the front so they could be picked up the next time the city comes along Gregory St. He has many more than usual this year because of the high winds we had last week, which brought leaves from who knows where into his backyard and left them against the fence that divides our backyards.


A side view of the pile. When he had his car parked next to the pile, all it would have taken was a bit of wind to completely cover his vehicle....perhaps that is why he now is parking in his driveway? He is taking no chances! ;)


I worked yesterday in our backyard gathering the leaves, but I put them into our compost pile, leaving some in the chicken run, too, for the girls to scratch through and break down, adding some of their rich droppings into the mix. It makes for a nice fertilizer. ;)

Great sunshine picks! We have a giant pile of leaves in the front yard. It's going to be combined with horse manure and marsh hay on the garden beds. I SO wish I could have stayed home yesterday and today to work on that. At least I have tomorrow...

Where's the pic of Donn running and jumping in the big pile of leaves?
