Rakin' leaves

Amazing how quickly the trees go from leafy to barren here as fall moves toward winter. A big sugar maple in the backyard finally dropped most of its leaves, and my older son and I filled 17 bags today. That's probably the last of it for this year. A small "fall fiesta" that we planted out front gave us a good color show in its first full turn of season - it's now bare as well.

The birds of all kinds continue to empty the feeders faster than I can fill 'em.

The lawn is going to winter dormancy (although it's still green!), so the mower is moving aside, with the snow blower now deployed closest to the garage door.

And God said, ‘Let there be lights in the dome of the sky to separate the day from the night; and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years...'" Genesis 1:14
