...and now you don't. All the maple leaves had fallen to the ground. It was time to get them off the driveway.
So we did the job yesterday morning — even though the leaves were still dripping wet from all our recent rain.
The driveway is certainly not as pretty now as it had been for the last month or so. Raking and picking up the leaves is a dirty job, especially when they're so soggy, but it has to be done.
We hauled all the leaves out to the vegetable garden and dumped them on the ground. They'll keep weeds from taking over the garden plot. And next spring, I'll till them into the soil as compost.
