When Leaves Are Gone We're Gone

We are fond of repeating the motto about leaving here when the leaves are gone.  The last couple of years we haven't quite been able to walk the talk.  This year, however, we've nailed it.  Just about 99% of the leaves are off all the neighborhood trees.  Meanwhile, the seasonal winds haven't been blowing our neighbor's leaves into our yard.  Meanwhile, we've stayed ahead of the leaves for weeks and they are tidily piled in the street.  The city has a huge leaf vacumn and they come and suck up all the leaves for free.
Here's a photo of our three trees in their peak of color a few weeks ago followed by a picture of how those trees look now.
