Borrowed leaves.



I don't know that windstorms blowing the neighbors' leaf piles into our once leaf-less yard is meant to be a good thing, but we are treating as such. Yesterday we were playing in the neighbor's leaf pile, and today there were neighbor kids in ours. Realistically, from this point forward, all the leaves are prety much community property. So far this is great news because it means on any given day we will probably have a good-sized leaf pile, in spite of our green maple!

And, brace yourselves, I bought a rake today. Oh my word, we are getting more and more Minnesotan.

I knew Alla would have fun in a big old pile of leaves. Can't wait to see pictures of you raking them! LOL

A big leaf rake?? We have one, too! It just sits there in the garage, though... right next to the snow shovel. I'm glad to live vicariously through you :)

I LOVE the colors in your pictures--Alla just looks amazing. Enjoy all those leaves. I'd say the raking is worth every back straining second!
