I live in an old neighbourhood and one of the positive things about this is that our street has many mature trees, which in turn = lots of leaves!
We always make as big a pile as possible, sometimes even 'borrowing' some of the neighbours leaves to acheive this.
By the time winter comes and the leaves are all gone my lawn will look like a UFO has landed on it because there will be a big yellow circle of 'unhappy grass' right in the middle of it; but we still do it anyways

This year I have noticed that the leaves have stayed on the trees longer than usual, has anyone else noticed this also?

One of my favorite smells growing up was when I helped my grandfather rake and burn the oak tree leaves in the fall.

There are quite a few trees here in Nova Scotia that still have green leaves on them. It is the end of the first week in Nov and I have never seen them this green so late in the year.

The picture I posted in post #2 was taken at this time last year.

Right now the leaves are turning and the foliage here in central Oklahoma is looking really nice, but there is still quite a bit of green left.
