The Leaves Must Fall

This week has been really chilly here.  In one day I saw the leaves of our Mulberry tree and our Black Walnut come down like rain completely denuding it.  It makes me sad to see the leaves fall.  I know that winter will soon be here.

I rake all the leaves up...yes, even the black walnut leaves and make a pile.  Then I take the lawn mower and run through the pile until I have a nice fine mulch.  I place the mulched leaves over the plants to provide them with a nice warm blanket for the winter months.
