The photohunt theme this week is aftermath. Many of my neighbors view leaves as a negative aftermath of fall. They rake, blow and bag them. I on the other hand love leaves and think they are a wonderful gift of fall.
The bagged leaves above are my neighbor's leaves, all ready to be hauled out. The leaves below are mine, providing a nice winter's blanket.It's better when I chop the leaves and spread them, but I didn't have the energy this year; so for the most part I'm using them as is. In the spring I'll rake them away from the emerging bulbs and flowers and hopefully get around to chopping and re-spreading.
I'm tempted to pick up my neighbor's bagged leaves and add them to my compost heap as I can always use more leaves. The problem is most of the leaves my neighbor bagged blew over from my yard so they would probably get upset if they saw me doing that.To find other takes on the aftermath theme you can visit the home of Photohunt where participants post on Saturday.
