Our trees are late dumpers. Long after the majority of the neighbor's trees are bare, ours finally let go and fall to the ground. Last year, they were falling on top of snow that didn't melt all season long. This year, we had plenty of time to spare. In fact, we haven't even had snow yet. I'm not complaining. I know it will come and I will be sick of it after the first snowman. Here are a few pictures of Nicholas and Essie enjoying a gutter full of leaves.
