The difference a couple of days makes...

A few days ago the trees in the wooded area behind our house looked like this: 
Vor ein paar Tagen sahen die Baeume in dem Waldstueck hinter unserem Haus noch so aus:

 Now, this is what they look like after a few very windy and chilly days.
So sehen sie heute aus, nachdem es hier tagelang windig und kalt war.

 Of course the leaves didn't wind up in the woods, they wound up in our yard. Any guesses as to what we'll be doing this weekend?
Natuerlich sind die Blaetter nicht im Wald sondern in unserem Garten gelandet. Wollt ihr mal raten was wir dieses Wochenende machen werden?


  1. I know they are work for you but look how pretty the yard is, all those colors against a still green yard, how pretty!

  2. I say mow them and mulch them. Raking is such hard work. :-) Our leaves have mostly hit the ground here too over the past few days with all of the wind from the Hurricane. Autumn is my favorite season so I'm always sorry to see the gorgeous leaves go.

  3. LOL....someone always has to do the work right??? :0
    Fall is going fast for you....and for those trees!
