This picture is a perfect taste of fall. When I was very little my Grandfather grew a garden every year and by the time fall rolled around his garden would be full of big pumpkins to carve for Halloween. My Grandmother would use some pumpkin for Thanksgiving pumpkin pie... yum. I always loved gathering the leaves into a pile then jumping in the pile. One year for Halloween we bought jack-o-lantern looking garbage bags and filled them with raked leaves and placed them on the back porch steps.

Rake Head Wreath ... This repurposed decor has quite a story to tell! After a lifetime of raking up autumn leaves, the handle broke in half and this hard working tool was reused as a trellis for nasturtiums to climb up. After the last of the handle rotted away, its final resting place is now on the wall as a decorative wreath. | The Micro Gardener
