Hillcrest Neighborhood Kids

Earlier this Fall our Lanesboro neighbors, Marv and Carol asked if their grandchildren could "use" the leaves under our maples. A couple of weeks ago I figured they had used up all the fun in the leaves and the season was getting long. Winter was coming. Lorna had friends coming over last weekend for a yoga weekend so I went over the day before and chopped the leaves with the mower and dragged them down on a tarp to compost under an evergreen tree.

A couple of days ago we were back in the Boro and my pile of leaves had been scattered about a little. The kids again? Shortly a deer came out of the woods and curled up, soon to be joined by a couple more. Yearlings. Yeah, the kids.
