Leaves and autumn go hand-in-hand. I love the shade trees around our house ... the payback is raking leaves in the fall.
There's firewood, there's kindling, and then there's the in-between. This is a split pile of the in-between ready for the wood stove.
Our shady backyard oasis is now an autumn wonderland. It's almost time to put away the summer outdoor furniture until spring but we'll have one or two last late-fall cookouts/Brunswick stews with friends before packing it in for 2012.
