Autumn in East Grand Rapids Michigan

We enjoy autumn in Michigan, it is one of our favorite seasons. The fall colors, the

 crisp fall air, football games, crisp crunchy apples are just a few of the wonderful

things about fall in Michigan.

 While the autumn colors on the trees are a thing of beauty, they quickly become

a much detested chore to clean up.  Raking leaves on a beautiful fall day

 is fun for about 30 minutes. On a blustery cold, rainy day, it is a miserable

chore, a never ending job to complete.  The leaves fall like rain, and will

take a few days to 2 weeks to completely leave the trees.

If you live in the city of East Grand Rapids, Michigan, this isn't such a chore because the

 city takes away your leaves for you.  All you have to do is get them to the curb.

As you can see in these photos of a few streets in East Grand Rapids, many

 leaves are at the curb, ready to be picked up and composted.

Wow! The city will pick them up? That's great :) If I had leaves like that to rake, I'd want to be living in East Grand Rapids! LOL

That is cool that the city will pick up the leaves and compost them!  I remember my dad doing that each fall, piling the leaves into his composting area.  Very beautiful photos also, great colors!

Tony and Darcy: I still do grin up our laves and composts them every year it is quite a job but the soil in a year or two is great for gardening.
