leaves are falling

DSC_1570.jpg

Our neighbor's tree sheds all its leaves in one go. It's amazing. Yesterday the branches were completely full and this morning it is raining leaves and filling the lawn. I love how there is no warning, as the leaves don't even bother to change colors before their mass descent . So there's really no other choice but to head out on Leaf Shedding Day and have an early morning leaf fight. And the cute thing is that this house is in the middle of us and a family with a four year old and they were already out in their jammies with the same idea.

Ps. My favorite part of this picture is Banks over on the side.

That looks magically delicious I mean fun. I really love it when a big pile of leaves fall at once; imagine a whole tree! I'd love it. xxoo

Ahhh, just the sound of those masses under foot are just too awesome for words. So glad you took full advantage of the magic!

Dad, I was too preoccupied being a crazy teenager to notice that kind of magic and beauty. Darn it. I need to go back as an adult to really appreciate the awesomeness.
