It happened.  I came back from California on Sunday afternoon to find this in my backyard.  It's like in one day the tree's in my yard decided to give up.  I actually enjoy fall more that any other season.  It's a change in the usually summer routine of mowing and watering and trimming and pruning.  It's not like winter where you shovel and shovel and shovel.  Nope it's fall.  Leaves fall, you rake and rake and rake.  Wait, I was just beginning to like this season.  Thankfully I have all of the tools for this task.  I have your old fashion rake with the long springy tongs, I have your typical stiff garden rake and when all else fails, I have the handy dandy leave blower/suck up thing....I sure miss my grown kids!
