This was after we had picked up the large branches. Pine tree litter covered the entire front yard, driveway and porch. It's still on the roof, so once I can find someone brave enough to go clean it off, I'll have to clean all of that up too.
The way the wind has blown this year, I'm wishing I'd purchased stock in black plastic leaf bags. I've certainly had to fill a lot of them.
The mess comes from three of these monsters on the west side of our front yard. I have a love/hate relationship with them. I love their shade, but I hate their messiness.
The sudden heat wave really forced the lilac into full bloom, so my lilac season will be rather short lived this spring.
The blossoms smell delightful. They perfume the air all over the back yard. Which is nice when you live with two poopy dogs ;-)
