Autumn colors and fallen leafs everywhere

Autumn coloration results in a totally different view of the garden, in more than one way For months the garden gets scattered with fallen leafs and needles. This may fit some gardens, due to the autumn feel, but does not fit ours. Collecting and removing fallen leafs is a major activity this and the next month.

Both the evergreens and perennials drop dead leafs and needles that get blown all over the place. These days dead leafs are scattered all over the garden, reaching each and every hidden and visible corner.

Most of the time we are collecting fallen leafs but an other continued activity is Momiage, removing dead needles from pine.
