This is the time of year when I delight in watching the leaves turned into sky dancers by the wind.
I'm sure I irritate my industrious neighbors who are busy blowing their leaves to the curb for pick up.
My leaves blow into their yards and I would feel sorry for them if their noisy leaf blowers weren't constantly interrupting the bird's songs much to my annoyance.
I do eventually rake after all the leaves have fallen, which will be soon, but I rake my leaves over my yard to use as mulch, shifting it from one spot to the next but eventually using all of them.
I love the way leaves look, even when they collect on my stairs.
The birds have been very active lately. I guess they are getting ready for winter.
It's also much easier to spot the birds in the trees which don't provide the cover of summer.
