Leaves make good mulch and can protect beds over the winter. I would probably be a lot more convincing in statements like that if the leaves were actually placed on said beds or then cleaned off them in the spring. But I'll still insist it's all part of the cycle of nature.

They do make good mulch--we try and use them as such; even so, we end up with WAY too many leaves!

P.S. I did have some nice leaf pictures, but photos are a bit buggy on FE lately...

Our dog also tracks in leaves from the back yard. The tree out there has those teeny tiny leaves and they are just EVERYWHERE! It's late enough here now that most of the leaves are gone. I love the idea of doing leaf rubbings...maybe we can go to the park to find some lingering leaves. :-)

The leaf rubbings are SO pretty--I love doing rubbings in general--rocks, coins, any type of household object that's sort of flat, and with an interesting rough side to it...
