Betty,

In the East, Midwest, and South - Yes! But in the arid West, not very
likely. Around here in the winter and early spring when there is adequate
moisture, it is too cold for much decomposition to take place, and in the
summer when it is warm, it is too dry (without adding moisture as John
suggested). It generally takes nearly a full year for fallen leaves to
decompose here.
