I was thinking the exact same thing yesterday while blowing/raking leaves. Although, my leaves cannot compare to your mountain of leaves.

Just pray for snow, then you won’t see them.

We moved last year to different house and somehow, the way the wind blows and the location of trees have made it that this house ends up with NO leaves on the lawn!!!!
This is in Massachusetts too people! What a nice surprise!
P.S. doesn’t make up for the other surprise at this house, water in the basement!

My first Florida-brain thought was “Whos’ the sucka that has to rake all those leaves?”
David saysNovember 23, 2009 at 11:41 am
Oooh, wait! I think I remember what those are! Living in Brooklyn, we don’t really have the “yard” thing going on. But I do love love love autumn and all those leaves that fall down that I don’t have to deal with in any way shape or form.

we deal with leaves in one of two ways:
spouse runs the tractor thru them, mulching them up OR
we wait til the wind blows them onto the neighbor’s lawn.

When a realtor says “look at those beautiful sugar maples !!” Run…………….

I also live in the Northeast…In addition to our normal coating of maple leaves, we also have walnut trees which drop their nuts (…sounds a bit obscene?!) by the thousands.
If you’re unfortunate enough to pick up a walnut past its prime, you get an impossible-to-remove black goop stain that looks like you washed your hands with a black Sharpie…good times.

Okay, so I’m one of those irritating people who likes raking. So that part doesn’t bother me at all. Big pile, jumping in it, being ridiculous…I like that.
Now shoveling snow would be a whole different thing…..shoveling I’m not as crazy about. Those will be the days I look back on SoCal and wonder what I was thinking. This I know.

Yeah. Leaves. We have a gazillion of ’em. Too many to blower vacc that’s for sure… taking arty photos is a way better use of your time!!!

I just moved from Maui to Maryland last week…I understand what you mean! My yard is one big leaf pile. The problem is I’d rather go to Ikea for 4 hours on Saturday then rake leaves for 4 hours.

They don’t compost either.
