A moment of pretty….
last color


…discovered while dealing with the ugly….

Raking leaves today. That photo above shows but a fraction of the 4 giant tarploads of leaves I’ve hauled out of my front yard today from the dreadful sycamore tree. I really dislike that tree this time of year! I mean really, look at the size of these leaves:

Obnoxious leaf

And there is exactly 9,786,584,001 of them! I counted! 😉


  1. I demand a re-count !

  2. Oh my goodness! Husband used to count pine cones as he picked them up. I don’t have nearly that many leaves (because I would never ever doubt that you counted each and every one) but my method of dealing with them is much easier: run the mower over them and call it mulch. Good for the soil.

    • That’s what I do with my backyard leaves – the lawnmower method. However, these horrible, gigantic sycamore leaves would clog my little mower before I did one row, thus I have to haul them out back behind my shed to compost there.

  3. lol! I started chuckling about you counting all those leaves, and then read Sybil’s comment and really did laugh out loud. That really is a big pile of big leaves. I’ve always liked raking leaves, but that’s easy for me to say now that I don’t do it anymore. Your moment of pretty is, indeed, very pretty. 🙂

    • The pile is even bigger now! I finished the job (of my front yard anyway) yesterday, and I’m feeling rather accomplished today.
      Thanks Robin.

  4. Such pretty yellow leaves on your trees! And I hope you had some fun, jumping in the leaf pile after you raked them! 😉
    It’s strange…we have yellow and brown leaves all over our yard, but the trees are still green!! Most of them anyway. I think the leaves fall off the trees first, and THEN decide to turn pretty colors. Darn TX trees have it all backwards 😛 LOL

    • I didn’t actually jump in the pile, but I did fall down at one point while tromping through trying to empty my tarp!

      • LOL I’d say that almost counts as jumping in 😉

  5. […] picture to show you, but I gave you a small idea of what the job is like last week in this post. That tree is nearly done dropping all its leaves, but some still cling to the […]

  6. […] I started bitching in 2011, the second year of my blog, lol, and I was really crabby about them 2 years ago. This year I tried to be smart about them and take advantage of raking them up before any kind of […]
