Let's see Fall brings the leaves on the ground. They turn their pretty colors and fall off the trees. Then the trees are bare n ugly looking and the ground is covered with annoying leaves blowing.
I personally rake them up. In my opinion they just make a mess all over the yard and patio. Then when it rains they get all soggy and gross. I usually rake them sometime around Halloween because I use what I need to make a scarecrow. The rest goes in the garbage. Then if I need to one more time in November.
Well now that I live in Florida I don't have as much leaves and no beautiful colors. We have these small leaves, they are even more annoying then the large ones.
