Just wanted to show you the kind of terrain I have been raking...not your average flat front lawn :-) I wanted you all to know why I am so tired and so far behind in comments...didn't want you to think I was whining about raking a few leaves :-) I'd have shown you the full sized image but Rendo kept telling me it was too big, no matter how much I reduced it.
Thank you for viewing :-)

I don't rake mine until late spring now. That way, 1) insects that lay eggs and such will survive into the next year 2) birds seem to like hiding their finds under many of the leaves 3) birds will use some of it for nests in the spring 4) they dry out and weigh far less in the spring, and the very best reason is 5) 80% of the dried leaves blow away early in the winter!

Well Fall does have its disadvantages as well as it's unique beauty. At least the ragweed is mostly gone now, and being outside is possible. Nice big yard, though, so that must be a joy. I have almost two acres to take care of....and about forty trees. It's like living in the woods, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
