As you've seen in a previous post, we have a HUGE Maple tree in our backyard. In the early Spring helicopters grow on it....and then start falling off in late Spring, as the leaves come on.
Remember playing with them when you were a kid? Heck, they're fun as adults!! We've been having a blast with them! You can take a handful and throw them in the air....and it puts on quite a show!
But, we've learned two things:
A) They self propagate!
I've even thought of becoming a Maple Tree Grower.
B) They are a bit of a nuisance!
So, with our handy dandy leaf blower, in reverse mode, he vacuumed them out of the gutters! :)
Every season brings something to clean up with all these trees we have. Good thing we love nature!
...and playing with helicopters...
