We have a large tree in our front yard that we love. It gives our home so much shade during the heat of the summer months. It is beautiful, although I don't have any idea what type of tree it is.
The down-side of having our tree is the fall season. The leaves fall off the tree so quickly and clog the gutters and bury our planters. At certain times, we will rake in the morning and by that same afternoon, the whole lawn is covered in leaves...again!
At least we can have some fun too!
