Autumn Leaves in the Foothills of Northern California
The trees in my backyard and side yard are now yellow, reddish brown and gold. They are starting to drop and every day, I have to scoop it from my swimming pool. I am not really complaining since this is an annual ritual here in my abode in the suburbs of Sacramento. The other day two neighborhood teenagers drop by and asked if they could rake the leaves for pay. I said yes and we both are happy with this transaction. I pay and they work. Below is video showing the Fall Colors in Kyoto, Japan.
This is also the time of the year when I remember the popular song Autumn Leaves. The following video is Nat King Cole rendition of this popular song.
