why would you want to leaf blow this

The best part of fall is the color. All the leaves on the ground make a beautiful mosiac that is so peaceful to look at. While Pat and I were working on the garden today we were seranaded by a chorus of leaf blowers. Maybe there's a law that eveyone has to own a leaf blower. We don't and I hope the lawn police don't find out. We spread 10 tons of sweet peet a year in our beds, so baging and trashing leaves seems kinda misguided (I usually use stronger language). I'll mow the leaves to mulch in the yard and compost the ones in the paths. Until then, I'll enjoy the sights.

I'm right with ya on the leaf issue, Jim. Personally i kinda like it when folks bag there leaves up for me to pick up curbside and take to my compost pile.
