|This afternoon we got out and raked leaves. It's a bit weird to be throwing|
leaves into the compost while we're still harvesting basil and tomatoes,
but there you go.
|The littlest kids enjoy being pulled to the compost pile in back. Their job is|
to keep the leaves from blowing away en route. Jaybird is ready to roll in
the wheelbarrow (background); she enjoys being dumped in the growing
pile of leaves at the end.
|Here's where all those leaves come from. They glow on the trees on sunny days.|
|Every noon, before his nap, Mudpuppy insists on going on a walk by the lake.|
This is his favorite park bench (actually a bench swing).
|We've taken quite a few fall color walks as a family lately. Last weekend,|
we walked along the creek at Moyer Park in Bloomington. Here's Jaybird.
|"Uncle Andy" on the same walk.|
|And the kids on a walk in the bluffs the week before that.|
|And today we went to the Bluffview Fall Festival, which was held on a farm.|
See Jaybird (Dalmation cape) on the hayride?
|Meanwhile, the older kids spent most of the time jumping around the haystacks|
piled up to the rafters in the barn.
|And besides the fall color, we've also been enjoying a profusion of Morning Glories--finally!|
