Fall in Love

falllove-201411Two maple leaves, fallen onto a hard surface, are interlocked forever …….. until the dreaded leafblower – beloved of all tidiness and elfinsafety officials – separates them. Ban leafblowers I say; they are an enemy of love.

  1. Heeheeeheee! Someone gave me a leaf blower as a gift some years ago. I have never once used it. I prefer the meditative act of raking.

  2. I like this very much, M, the composition is beautiful, as is the contrast between the granite (I think!) slabs and the leaves’ colours. And I totally agree about leafblowers – and not least at a time when we’re supposed to be reducing our energy usage >>> if we must move leaves, then someone sweeping them up both reduces energy use and provides useful exercise for the sweeper upper – oh but I forgot, the sweeper upper may take longer, and thus require more pay – and that what its all about! 😦 A
