Pat , the boys and I were taking our daily constitutional. we started in twilight knowing that it would be dark before we got back home. Maybe it's because I'm an ex-pat flatlander and still, even after five years, have not become whatever people from Ohio are called, but what is the deal about leaf blowing in the dark? All the way back home, in the dark, there were people leaf blowing. I don't think the homeowners association will bang on our door if we leave leaves on the grass? I should check with the yard police.
There is a beauty at this time of year right before the temperature turns cold. The yard has a golden glow to it. There are still a few flowers still holding out and look how green the grass still is.
