We All Fall Down

40+ bags of leaves, but who’s counting? The stately 450 year old Oak tree which provides a colony of life that canopies our home spring, summer and fall is of course the last to let go of its leaves in September.


I’m not sure of the calorie burn, but it certainly feels like a serious workout. Every autumn I vow to myself that the next house will only have large trees in the surrounding peripheral of the property, further away from the gardens and house.

That said, it really is a beautiful tree and certainly enhances the landscape visually.
