Fall leaves!

Fun in the leaves
So, have you jump in the leaves yet this fall? I hope so!  If not, perhaps you might live vicariously for a moment?


just a little bit of personality around here :)
pretty dogwood leaves (native Cornus florida)
maple leaves falling all about the still-green Rudbeckia and vetch leaves...
My sweet sillies: see them playing in the leaves two years ago! Time does fly!!
We had our first snow Oct 24th, though it melted within hours; our first frost yesterday, though everything is still standing. But for now, we are treasuring up the last few nice October days in Pennsylvania!

For more on our garden, be sure to see all of the color in mid-October!

  1. Jumping and having fun, that's what leaves are for. I loved the way they used to crunch underfoot when I was a child and relished kicking them up in the air to see them fall again!

  3. Images like this takes us all right back to childhood I think. I miss having young kids around. Your kids are beautiful Julie.
    I was walking along the river bank earlier today, happily kicking my wellie boots through the piles of fallen leaves.

    1. That sounds like a nice day! Dry weather is nice for enjoying that crunch. We are to have more snow on Sunday, but we were soaking up the sun again today. :)
