And I love shuffling my feet in the leaves as I walk.
I'm always happy to walk in wooded areas, where my camera can capture the changing seasons.
Having said that, I'm grateful my trees have tiny leaves that don't need to be raked. Or else I'd have lots of these!
And really, I'd rather do something else!
Postscript on shuffling: Fun as it is, I'm not recommending it! I've always believed in shuffling your feet as you walk through leaves, letting them rustle, hearing the sound. After all, if you have to take care of them, you may as well also have some fun.
As some of you know, I shuffled along and tripped over uneven walk on Rick's patio (it was covered by leaves and I was dragging my feet).
The result? A fractured "radial head" in my forearm. No surgery needed (sometimes this is the case, I'm told) -- and I'm grateful for that. But have to be careful with it. (He said he wouldn't splint it if I followed order. Yes, sir!)
Pick up your feet!
