Nature's Cleaner Upper

December 1st.
Dead leaves were still hanging on.

this morning.

The rain and wind the last couple of days
have done a wonderful job
of clearing out
the dead leaves from the oak trees.

Which means that I can get outside
and rake my paths and the driveway
and not have them 
covered up with leaves again
inside of a few days
and have to rake them all over again and again.

I'm old and lazy and now wait each year
for the wind and rain to 
clear out the trees
before I get outside and rake.

Acres of oak leaves out there.

At least you're raking -- I don't even do that, we just let the wind take them away through the winter. How's that for being lazy? :-)!

Makes perfect sense to me!
Hope you all have a blessed weekend.
