Day 314 - Leaves and more leaves

The leaves have fallen from the maple and oak in our front yard and I have been blowing, raking and bagging them.

This was the third load this weekend to the county's compost facility and there's still more to go.

Lots of leaves and brush are piling up. The county will bring in a large mulching machine to grind up this pile into free mulch. The main county site (adjacent to the landfill) sells both compost and mulch made from the yard waste deposited there.

You know all that "blowing" likely means you're raking up someone else's leaves -- and some one else is raking up yours! Then there's me -- all my leaves are green!

Oh! I love the color of the pics though, and the composition of the one with the rake.
