If only fall landscape weren’t so beautiful, one would be inclined to become very annoyed at the daunting task of getting the leaves off the lawn, patio, front porch, ground covers, driveway and flower beds, over and over, in ways that remind one of the myth of Sisyphus. Gratified by a job well done, one looks behind to see it completely undone by the wind. If one didn’t see the mound of already cleaned up fall wonder in front of them, one might be inclined to believe one lost one’s ever loving mind. There is a silver lining though: when all the leaves fall off the trees, you’re really done. Until then exercise patience and a peaceful mind, and try to enjoy the beauty of these colors.
