P52 Photo Challenge - Leaves - Week 43

For the 43rd week in the P52 Photo Challenge, the theme is "leaves." There aren't too many leaves on the trees at this point. Some of the oak trees are holding onto their leaves as are the willows.

The rest of the leaves are on the ground. At some point, they will need to be mowed. In that process, they turn into tiny pieces and decompose back into the ground.

In areas where there are more leaves, I either rake or mow them under the base of trees. In this way, the leaves naturally become part of the earth rather than being bagged up and tossed into a landfill somewhere.

Everything in the world is connected...and there is always a way for something or someone to help another.
