Leaf jumpin'

Each Fall, Boo and Licious wait for every last leaf to fall off the big Sugar Maple tree so they can do this . . .







I think the blue birds wait for every leaf to fall too. They hate competing with the fiery red display of autumnal splendor. Show offs.

your girls are too cute! Our trees aren't quite big enough to get that big of a pile - fun times :) Love the action shots

Fun! My girls may be doing that today, it has been really windy and all the leaves from the 100 year old trees across the street blew into our yard.

I love the bluebird picture too.

Wow, those bluebirds are divine!

Sarah said...

I could go for a good old fashioned jumping in the leaves session!

What beautiful birds! I wish we had those here in New England. If we do, I've never seen them.

What fun jumping in the leaves! I used to love doing that as a kid.

Love the bluebirds, so good to have around the garden. Have you ever noticed how those that were born in a bluebird house will stay there for the winter too w/parents and siblings. A pair of parents might have 3 sets of babies and then all of them with stay in the same house for winter. For real.

When Hubby had our Maple tree leaves raked up in a big pile the other day, I was terribly tempted to do the same thing as Boo and Licious! ;-)

I love the picture of the bluebirds. I rarely see them.

That first picture is absolutely priceless! I wish we could wear our jackets...our temperatures just went back up. Mother Nature just isn't convinced that it's time for fall here. Grrrrrr....

Joan said...

That's what leaves are for.looks great fun

Amylouwho said...

Those bluebirds are breathtaking! I love them.

Who can resist a huge pile of leaves? Not me!

Holly said...

We did this about a week ago. We have tons of leaves to rake int he front yard. The kids love jumping in. The birds are beautiful.

Artfulife said...

Isn't this a childhood ritual? Too fun.

april said...

Great pic and fun blog!

Stacy said...

I can't wait until our trees get big and have lots of leaves so our future wee-ones can romp and have fun in them. Right now they are MAYBE 7 ft tall with MAYBE one walmart bag full of leaves each. :(

Those bluebirds are gorgeous! So pretty!

Paola said...

OOhh love the bluebirds!

Lene said...

Your girlies look like they are having so much fun. Our leaves haven't even begun to change yet. The curse of living in the southwest.

Helz said...
