Perpetual leaves

It's the time of year of perpetual leaves. At any time day or night when I look outside, I see falling leaves. I bought a battery-powered leaf blower a few weeks ago, and I love it. Snap on a fresh battery and soon the deck, walk, and the porch is all swept clean.  Thirty minutes later, it's time to do it again.

At work, we have maintenance men who will retire hearing the scream of gas-powered leaf blowers. Yesterday, they'd blown all leaves off the courtyard, but today as I walked back to my office from the main building, leaves had collected at the steps.

The leaves on redbrick looked interesting to me, so I snapped a picture.

I hope you all have a blessed Thanksgiving.


  1. For the past 15-20 years we have been able to say, we don't cut crass, clean gutters or rake leaves, BUT, but now that has changes some.
    Yes the leaves and brick do make an interesting shot, I like it.

    You have a good eye for photos, Rick!!

  3. Our leaves have all fallen. I love the crunch of them under my feet. Of course with snow and rain they no longer crunch. I guess the time has come to rake.

  4. I was going to say what Emma said, those look like good foot crunching leaves.

  5. I love this photo! It looks like art to me! I hope you have a great Thanksgiving!

  6. Fascinating how much can be observed in a random shot. Love the warm colors.
