After a few days of the weather teasing us, tomorrow it will be fall here in the sunny South. (probably everywhere else too). I'm even noticing leaves starting to fall off the trees, and you know what that means. Raking and mulching! The leaves are beautiful when they change color. It would be nice if they didn't drop off, but then we wouldn't have the new green leaves in the spring. It's kind of like a lot of things in life. Life often comes out of death.
