conquering our backyard, one leaf at a time.

One thing we love about our house is that the back wall of our family room is all windows, floor to ceiling, and we have a great view of the woods in our backyard.  This fall has been a gorgeous one.  The trees in the woods look like they’re made of gold.  When the light shines through the trees and into our windows, our whole family room has a yellow glow.  Not only are the leaves beautiful to look at, they are also fun to play in.  Torin is pretty particular about her leaf pile.  Some leaves get raked into the pile, while others are placed strategically by hand.  Once she has deemed the pile to be perfect, it’s time to let instincts take over.
