Leaves, leaves, and more leaves

Today Joanne is here, so I was able to clean up all of the leaves. I hope that this will the last time, but we'll see. A couple of weeks ago we bought a yard vacuum because cleaning up the leaves from the pin oak in the front is a monster task. Here is a before and after picture of the tree.

The vacuum grinds up the leaves and makes the piles about 10 times smaller in volume. I put a lot of the leaves on the garden beds as a mulch. Here are some pictures of today's efforts.

It is great that I can see the house from the back now too. That toproom with all the windows is the sunroom I guess? Is that your study ? It looks like a house with lots of possibilities. I like it!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, it has lots of possiblities, which really attracted me to it. The sunroom is actually going to be a painting studio, and the study is in the front of the house.
