The old Fleetwood Mac songs runs through my head these days. The last blue norther is behind us (I hope!) and the oaks in the back yard have dropped all their leaves. Twenty plus bags later and the back yard looks clean again, but the trees are naked! Driving to work and looking out the windows across from my classroom, all the hardwoods are naked. I love this time though, because in 2-3 weeks, the trees will take on this lovely yellow-green haze as they bud out and soon the lush green of spring here will take hold.
