the Leaves are Falling!

I heard squeals in the back yard yesterday....

Another childhood memory - the big piles of leaves in the back yard.  I don't know what it is about a big mound of leaves that screams "jump on in" or "throw me up in the air".  But it's what I think of every time I see a giant pile of freshly raked leaves.  And then I remember how itchy they get when you get those crunchy tree leaves in your shirt and pants.  *itch, itch*

What do you think of when you see a pile of leaves?

I think of the smell. Mmmmm, thank you for the pics, they bring that smell back into my poor, dried out, desert-living nose! And I'm sure there are only a few pics because seconds later you joined them, right? <3
