10 days is all it takes to go from green to orange.

Only 10 days ago our maple tree showed mainly green and only a few specks of yellow. Overall the yard followed suit. But now, only few days later all is orange, orange and if not that, then it’s definitely yellow. Our kitchen shines in the morning in this gorgeous fall light, filtered through the maple hanging over our deck – the orange is in the light and everywhere, reflected in the 3 large pumpkins lined-up along the deck door and our kitchen counter surface.

Of course not all is just color and light, some work is there too.

Today we returned the leaf bagger attachment which did not want to fit our neighbors riding mower – wow, Amazon did not only ship this 70 pounder for free but also arranged the return pickup within less than 24 hours and also for free – and only a few hours later our own, new riding mower arrived – including a leaf attacher which fits. And even though the thick layers of leaves are weight down with water from yesterdays storm, we couldn’t resist and test our new toy. Naturally it clogged up quickly but even so, the speed with which we filled 7 large, recyclable bags was impressive and already now I’ve decided that I won’t regret the money spent nor the space this new small monster will take up in our garage – it’s manifold better than the yearly blisters we got from raking and the hours spent to tame summers death.
