Day 12
I have been 'leafing' all day and am 'buggered' as they say here - too tired to do a special walk but definately well exercised already. We have enormous eucalypts in our street which drop whole branches from time to time but not much in the way of compost material so at this time of year I get the trailer which we have a part share in and find the streets which are planted with oaks or claret ash. (All Canberra streets have street trees planted on 'nature strips' which are about 3-4 metres wide and may or may not have a footpath) It's clear who doesn't want 'their' leaves as they have pushed them into the gutters. Now I have to go and unload the trailer.

Wow! It looks like you have been very busy! I hope you aren't too tired after all that work. I walked today, but I didn't have my sketch book with me to draw. I'll have to figure out how I can blend walking with drawing. I love these "walk a mile a day" blogs!

Wow Alison - you are excused walking!

I've just realised how many of yours I have missed while being distracted by my poorly monitor

PS Why do you collect the leaves?
