One of the things that sold us on our home were all the live oak trees in the backyard……..twelve (hence, “Twelve Oaks Manor“)!
They are a thing of beauty and create a beautiful canopy from the summer sun, especially in July and August when our Texas temperatures are usually 100 degrees or better.
Yes, they are beautiful………..
………..except in the Spring!!!!
This is our backyard from mid March thru…….NOW!!
Every weekend we are blowing and bagging leaves! I think at last count we’ve set out close to 50 large garbage bags for the trash men (they LOVE us!)
You see, unlike most trees whose leaves drop in the fall, live oaks drop their leaves in the spring.
We are finally starting to feel like we are getting a handle on it and the leaves have stopped falling except for an occasional renegade or two!!!
We are slowly working our way back to this……..
I think another couple of weeks should do it!
Wish us LUCK!!!
