IN THE MIDST,
OF STRUCTURES TALL

In the midst,
Of structures tall.

Lies
A place,
Where Nature
Calls.


A bower.
In the wilderness,

Where
I alone can be.

There,
In solitude,

And dwell
In ec-
Sta-sy.

EVERYONE in my neighborhood has every single leaf removed from their yard. Then they have pine straw or wood chips brought in. I have never understood this. Nice to know I am not the crazy one!

We mulch most of our leaves. Some of the mulch is used as a thick groundcover and some is in a big pile next to the compost.

People probably assume that leaf mulch won't work as a groundcover because large leaves do blow around. But mulched they really don't catch the wind. We often have strong winds and our leaf mulch stays put.

Some years we have done the leaves ourselves and some years we have had a "mow and blow" crew do it. I haven't found a service that will do it properly though. They just don't seem to want to deviate from their normal procedure.

THE BEAUTY,
OF FALLEN LEAVES

God
Spread
His leaves
There on display,

And with them
Let
The
Winds,

Then play

Let them swirl
Across the land.

Build bunkers
So
And take a stand.


He
Give us colors
Rich
To see,

Against
Green grass,
For harmony.


God
He gave us
Winds’
Delight.

And provided there
A perfect sight,


To see them slowly
Swirling,

A pleasure so it be.

As He provided
Utter joy,

And a child’s
Ec...sta-sy

Finally, my kind of kitchen. I'm one of those who only have a kitchen because it came with the house. Wonderful ideabook Laura, thanks.

Love the energy efficiency but would love to see a "traditional" home built to such high standards for those of us not keen on the modern style. Bravo to these homeowners though for doing what I dream of!

None of those bathrooms would encourage me to linger--
well, maybe the one with the black framed shower...
but they are just so staged...how could anyone see themselves actually using one???
