Is there anything more satisfying than raking leaves from lawns and paths? - and such good exercise! I am currently feeling quite self-satisfied having spent almost an hour in such activity - although it's quite windy so the self-same exercise will have to take place again in the next day or two. I notice that last year's leaf mould has broken down beautifully so I've moved it all over to one-third of the 'cage' that Himself made for me last year and will spread it as a mulch over one of my bigger borders. Now I know how much it breaks down, I shall ensure I gather every leaf that falls this year and leave it to perform its magic for next winter.
