On an earlier post, I mentioned how much we love the gigantic trees that line our yard. They offer shade and beauty for several months of the year and I love them. I love them until, oh say... the end of October. This is when my feelings towards our tall beauties turn to resentment and frustration. I sweep off my porch almost everyday and every morning when I go outside it is covered. I rake my yard several times a week only to find that my lawn is covered in another 4 inch blanket of leaves! Last year we took like 5 truckloads to the dump and 90% of the time I take something out of Pearl's mouth, she is gagging on a leaf that has been tracked into my house.
Okay enough of Negative Nelly. On a more positive note, they make for some pretty cute pictures. So to take advantage of our leaf infestation, Pearl had a little fall photo shoot with me in the leaves.
She loves them.
Millie has worked out quite the leaf regimen.
ONE: Starts touching the fire hydrant running towards the swing.
TWO: Mounts swing.
THREE: Makes a jump for it.
FOUR: Play dead and repeat steps 1-4.
