And The Raking Goes On...

Trees are beautiful. They offer shade, oxygen, and a place for the little birdies to rest and raise their families. Trees are evil. They drop leaves and branches. They crowd against your house and wear off the paint. Sigh... They have two personalities. One they show in the spring and summer, being kind, almost thoughtful to those around them. Then comes the fall and winter. They get tired and grumpy. They get messy, creating what seems like a neverending abundance of leaves. Sigh... We purchased our home almost 25 years ago. It was in the middle of the lot, no landscaping to speak of, a little lawn, a few roses. As new homeowners, we couldn't wait to plant trees, flowers, all those things that scream "home". If only I had known then what I know now. I think I would have skipped all those deciduous trees and stuck with the evergreens. Sigh... And the raking goes on.
