Those Autumn Leaves Are Really Nothing To Sing About!

Last Saturday was a beautiful sunny day.  It was sort of like an Indian Summer … only it couldn’t be an Indian Summer because we haven’t had a first frost of fall yet. But my lawn with Autumn Leaves, so I decided to get my lawn mower out and kill  two jobs (last grass trim before winter and a great leaf suck-up) at one swell swoop. And when I finished, the yard looked manicured. Well, at least until the rain started on Monday night.

Come Tuesday morning, my beautifully manicured lawn suddenly looked like this.LeafyLawn

It was covered with twice as many autumn leaves as there had been on Saturday. Sure, I could blame it on the wind and rain, but I know better. LEAF DROPPER

My lawn had been attacked by the leaf devil who ran around the yard shaking the branches of all the trees and dropping leaves to the accompaniment of a glissando tinkling piano. It was probably named Roger, too.

Guess I’ll have to drag out the leaf blower tomorrow.
