MORE OF AUTUMN – Marilyn Armstrong

More of Autumn -FOTD – November 11, 2018


The leaf sucking company was here this morning. The dogs went into total hysterics. Actually, that’s not true. The Duke went berserk because he thinks he is a giant protector, except I don’t think he has scared anyone yet. He’s just not a terrifying creature.

They came with giant vacuum cleaners and in about an hour, they sucked up about three million oak leaves. Then they blew them into the woods to join in the mulching of millions of other leaves.

Japanese maple – the last autumn tree

As they were packing up to leaves, the wind came up and half a million more leaves blew down, but at least you can see the ground now. They even cleaned off the deck and the area around the lawn furniture.

But our crazy little Japanese maple is still looking amazing. It is now officially (according to me) The Last Tree of Autumn. Most of the trees are completely bare, so this tree is unique.

    • I think it will be bare by tomorrow. I got as many pictures as I could, but I think tonight it will freeze and that will be the end of it. I only had three days to work, so I did the best I could.
