    Yambwa, I was so interested to read that you rake your yard. My husband and I spend A LOT of time raking our yard in October and November, when the leaves fall from the tress. Does that also happen in Namibia? Here’s a picture of what the leaves look like here in the fall (granted, this is a very beautiful picture…):
