Je n'aimerais pas faire leur travail.

"Leaf us alone". They have "branched out" on other activities.
Lisl: It took me a while to twig your comment, Alan

They look happy but leaf clearing can be a pain.
Lisl: It seems to go on for so many weeks, Chad
If they are digging them then they aren't waiting to go in why not be happy grin
Lisl: Quite, Bill!

They don't have machines in the UK?
Lisl: Yes, they do. Perhaps these like the old ways
Great shot, not entirly happy about having his picture taken I guess.
Lisl: I don't think he minded - we had been chatting for about half an hour
That's an ideal bag to have, Lisl. Looks like it holds a large quantity of leaves. Are you still allowed to burn leaves in England or, like we do here, put them out for collection?
Lisl: We are allowed to have bonfires, but not if they cause a nuisance

Lovely picture - the graveyard looks well kept.
Lisl: They looked after this and other local churchyards and cemeteries
Happy to be still above ground smile
Lisl: For a long time, too, I hope
They look more like leaf collectors in this photograph smile
Lisl: One of their many tasks, Cherie
An easier job today.
Lisl: Yes, and they had good weather for it
