This is the view from the back door - facing west, cloudy sky; facing east is a bright sunrise and blue for a while, giving the trees a glow. The leaves looked almost fluorescent, though the camera doesn't really pick that up well.
This is why I shake my head over my neighbor's lack of enthusiasm about leaves on his grass. We have 100 yards of woods running the length of the neighborhood, west of the houses. The wind in the fall tends to blow from the west-southwest. It's just a hopeless cause, y'know?

It's such a beautiful view. Time to enjoy the leaves, walk through them and here the crunch and jump into large piles and smell the richness of fall.

That is too bad about the trees - but justice will be served with the wind.

Here in the arid west, I treasure every scrap of shade we have.
