One of my greatest childhood memories is of my grandfather raking up the leaves in the fall and after my sister and I would finish playing in them he would take them little by little and put them in a small, old can and burn them. So it was safe that way! It smelled so good! I loved it. However by the time I became an adult the state I live in declared it to be illegal to do that. because not everyone would do it safely! There has always got to be a few in every bunch to spoil the fun!

The small amount of leaves that was burned was in a can..... no danger there. Playing is the leaves disgusts you? Why?

@dfollin Nope. Never did the leaf thing. Mainly because I never remember having a pile of leaves in our yard.

I love the smell of my wood stove in Montana. I don't wash the clothes I wear there for weeks after I come home to California.
