I never had the privilege of setting a pile of leaves ablaze. This is one area that I would have enjoyed seeing my efforts go up in flames. Certainly, with all of the California wild fires currently burning, this could never be considered.
As I type this post, I am barefoot, wearing a t-shirt and stretch jeans. I was dressed this way when I went outside to protect my plants from the dry heat that has been chasing away the night chills at sunrise.
I can't imagine raking leaves dressed like the woman on this vintage magazine cover. Making a fashion statement during yard work—especially in high heels—has never been a priority. No, I would rather be dressed in clothes that don't mind rolling in leaves.
