Where did all the oak trees go?

Location: 36th St. and West River Pkwy

This spot at the top of Giggling Hills was filled with oak saplings just a few weeks ago.
Park management must be thinning it out so the mature trees can thrive. A great place to go for a walk in the neighborhood that over looks the Mississippi River.

Autumn Leaves

Autumn Leaves – Johnny Mercer
The falling leaves drift by the window
The autumn leaves of red and gold
I see your lips, the summer kisses
The sun-burned hands I used to hold
Since you went away the days grow long
And soon I’ll hear old winter’s song
But I miss you most of all my darling
When autumn leaves start to fall.
