October Mornings

Mornings are dark now...and the street lights are still on while the kids are waiting for the bus.

But, late October mornings are peaceful when the wind is calm and the air is warm.

The trees are very pretty on my street right now, soon they will be bare.
I love to see the leaves lining the street, they are being picked up weakly now, so the drains are kept clear. We are lucky, we don't have to bag our leaves, just rake them to the curb and they are blown into a truck.

October mornings are a good thing!

I think your city has it right about sweeping the leaves to the curb and having a truck pick it up! How environmentally smart!

I am trying so hard to imagine it! It looks like bed time not morning! LOL! Those trees are still my favourite! I have my leaf from you carefully put away in my displaly cabinet!

I love them too. Walking out on the deck with a cup of coffee, cooling down!

If I were 'awake' that early-I'd probably enjoy them too! :-)

It looks so peaceful.
We also have a blower that picks up our leaves.
Thanks for sharing.

You're so lucky! Last year we collected about 48 heavy duty bags of leaves. *sigh* Looks beautiful!

I love the colors of October and the cool crip mornings.

Nancy said...

wow really you just rake them to the curb? that is really cool! I wish we had that!! It takes me weeks to get rid of the bags and bags of leaves we have.

You are so right. October mornings -- and afternoons are lovely now. We've had some heavy rain and the leaves are falling fast. We do not, however, have pickup. We just rake them into the garden to use as mulch for the soil so that's not too bad.

Thanks for the review and tip on the slimperfect. I'm going to check it out.

Crazy to think of the kids standing outside in the dark on their way to school. Ahhh gotta love the shorter days - lol
