The last of the leaves have fallen off the trees around my house thanks to Hurricane Sandy’s 90 MPH gusts a few weeks back. I’m a big fan of autumn leaves on the lawn. The yard looks like one large leafy crazy quilt in varying shades of red, green and yellow.
My kidlets are also fans of autumn leaves on the lawn, but not for the same reason as I. They like it because when we rake them all up, they make the perfect leaf pile to jump in.**
