All the leaves are brown…

Today made me nostalgic for living in Laramie.  Back in the day where there weren’t so many treees where I lived, and I didn’t have to deal with them, cause I was always in rental property! 

Tina’d already been working a lot on cleaning up the yard – trimming trees and shrubs, raking leaves, fun stuff like that.  Today I went outside to “help back the truck up to the trailer real quick,” and ended up joining in the fun for the next 6 hours.  I can not believe how many leaves and dead branches this yard gathers!!  And how many little aspen trees try to shoot up every year.  It’s amazing.  I’m thinking there must be a way to make money off of this – start a little aspen tree farm or something and sell them out of the backyard.  We took a trailer load and a truck load to the Green Cycle center.  And there’s still a big trash can full of dandelions (where the heck did these things all come from?!!), and two ginormous trash bags full of more leaves that need to go.  Whew!  I only wish I liked (and was good at!!) gardening & yard work & stuff.  I would love so much to have an herb garden and a vegetable garden, and pretty flowers everywhere, but I am really only good at growing dirt.
