We also have a pile of green materials from the summers mowing and gardening. Mixing green and brown materials together is the basic rule to get the compost process going. Green materials, such as grass clippings or fresh green plant parts, supply nitrogen. Brown materials, such as dead leaves, are high in carbon. Mixing the two assures good conditions for microbes, which actually decompose the plant material.
The falling leaves drift by the windowThe autumn leaves of red and goldI see your lips, the summer kissesThe sun-burned hands I used to hold
Since you went away the days grow longAnd soon Ill hear old winters songBut I miss you most of all my darlingWhen autumn leaves start to fall
Cest une chanson, qui nous ressembleToi tu maimais et je taimaisNous vivions tous, les deux ensembleToi que maimais moi qui taimaisMais la vie spare ceux qui saimentTout doucement sans faire de bruitEt la mer efface sur le sable les pas des amants dsunis
