Good news, bad news!

The good news about fall is the great abundance of leaves for our grandchildren to play in. Preschool age kids seem to love jumping into piles of leaves. This is grandson Noah during a visit to Jamesport.

The bad news is that I have to rake leaves from four giant trees at the Arbor House. I worked at it for six hours yesterday and did not get the job done. I have to burn the leaves after collecting them. Our trash collector does not accept yard waste.

Fall is a beautiful time of year, but for those of us with large trees, there is a price to pay in labor and chance encounters with garden snakes. I uncovered two types of non-poisonous snakes this year hidden beneath the leaves.
