Here I am again with a sporadic post. I think I mentioned that we have an over abundance of leaves this year and for some reasons they seem to be extra large. We have eight huge oak trees that line our drive way and most of the leaves come from them but we also have a small wooded area on the back of our property line. With all the wind and rain we have had it hasn't been possible to get out there to clean them up, so they have continued to accumulate as you can see. This is a picture of part of our back yard and the rest of the yard looks the same or worse.
Sweetman enlisted the help of the youngest son to help clean up. Not that he was so eager to be enlisted for yard work but he was a big help. They started this morning about 10am and never quit until 3:45pm when the job was finally finished. Said leaves are now out in the road burning away to a small patch of ashes.
Fortunately the weather was pleasant with sun shining most of the day and not to much of a wind, but just enough of a breeze to keep the sweat off the brow.
While they were out
