We have had some wind and rain and are expecting more rain, lots of rain.
The oak leaves are coming down and covering all the walks around the house with tannin stains. I rather like the mottled effect, no one else does it seems. Today I went out to blow the leaves off the walks and out of the rock borders. I'm not very good with the blower yet, so there I am blowing those small fluttery oak leaves every which way and it starts to rain, making the task a bit more interesting.
Finally my neighbor can't stand it any more...
"Brig, you do know it's raining right, you're soaking wet, have leaves all over you, and your laughing!"
"Yep I know, it's a good day... if you listen careful like you can hear the cow feed growing."
