Fallen leaves are blowing in the wind of Carol Hamilton’s backpack blower as she and Nancy Cifuentes of Seattle Parks and Recreation gather leaves for pick up in Volunteer Park on Capitol Hill on Tuesday. The two will collect about 75 percent of the park’s deciduous leaves to be composted — mainly from beech, maple, horse chestnut, linden and sycamore trees. Cifuentes said blowers are needed or “you’d have to get the National Guard to clean out the leaves with rakes.”
