After Hurricane Sandy blew through, Joe and I spent an entire day blowing, bagging and dragging leaves into the street.
I thought our yard was a blanket of leaves because of the Hurricane.
But it wasn’t.
It was wall to wall leaf just because it’s fall.
And I know that because they were all back the next week.
Here’s what our yard looked like after the Hurricane –
I took this when were just about half done – crazy huh?
Luckily, my parents gifted us a leaf blower last year. It didn’t get much of a work out last year, since we moved in in January – but this year –
And once blown, they had to be dragged to the street –
Ta da –
You’d think we we’d be done after this (and this is only half – we had them piled up on the other side of the driveway as well) – but nope – nope, we were back at it yesterday –
Look at all of the bags!!
No one told me about all of this yard work when we were thinking about moving to the suburbs. I just don’t remember any raking, or bagging, or leaf blowing when I lived with my parents in the ‘burbs. I guess our lawn was just a mess, but it certainly didn’t occur to me that we should be out there doing anything. The only yard upkeep I remember is my dad mowing the lawn with a shmata rag on his head, and that’s about it. Not any more.
But, who enjoyed the leaves?
Sneaky Olive –
She’s so totally about to pounce.
And here’s Lemon – leaping for her life –
Crazy puppy is right behind her!
Glad someone enjoyed all of this fall-ness!
