Those Beautiful Darn Leaves of Autumn

Real Estate Agent with Russell Real Estate Services

It’s getting to be that time of year again.

                         Autumn Leaves

Cooler temperatures herald the colorful display of the autumn leaves, blooming mums, pumpkins and the wonderful outdoors of Fall.


It’s a welcome respite for most from the heat of the summer.


Bags of leavesBut, what to do when those pretty leaves begin to fall?

Of course you can compost some of them, bag some of them and then what?


Barnes Nursery is offering a FREE Yard Waste Drop-off at their Nursery at 1630 Camp Rd..   The Fall event will take place on two days, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. October 29 and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. October 30.


You do need to be a resident of Huron or Sandusky to take Driver's Licenseadvantage of this Free Event, so bring your proof of residency with you.


Enjoy the Season and Thank you Barnes Nursery

LOL, Mary,

I agree with you... I love the fall beacause of its colors, but when you have to help your husband rake the lives for three weekends in the row.... :( This year I am not doing it...

Alan and Michele, Thanks for taking the time to read and comment.  We live in the middle of a hardwood forest.  Hubby has the industrial backpack type blower.  Most days it's a losing battle.  Luckily we don't have to bag them.

Hi Mary- Thanks for the tip!  I'm going to check to see if any of our local nurseries have a similar program, although (knock on wood) my trees have only just started to change color.

Andrew,  Ours have just started dropping.  A few here, a few there.  Then before you know it, it's snowing leaves.  Good luck finding a Nursery in your area that does this.
