It starts with a spot of color here
A dash of color there
That builds up
To all the true colors of leaves
That give a display
As plants prepare for winter
Winds howl, leaves fly
Piles and mounds of leaves gather
Why is hard to resist
A walk thru
Kicking leaves for the sound and a simple joy
Truth be told, out of respect for my neighbors I do mow and shred my leaves, to make a mulch like a forest duff

The winds have been blowing and the leaves have been piling up this week for sure. Love the whole process except the last one of moving them off the lawn before winter. 😦
I’ll be over there to kick them, before you rake them up. Thanks for the comment

In my dry native forrest the gums drop leaves and twigs all year but now the dead branches look like snakes and I stop and start and walk carefully.
I miss those days of changing leaves on the trees. Thanks for taking me back. : )
Reblogged this on Dionysus Amber.
Your leaves are prettier than my leaves… Mine are still too green…
Boy, does this bring back memories. We lived near Chicago for a couple of years when I was a kid, and on one of the classic tree-lined streets, so there were oodles of leaves to be kicked through, heaped up, dived into, and flung around like confetti, and it was grand!!! Thanks for the trip down memory lane. 😀
Beautiful, absolutely beautiful!
