Husband is sooooooh sooooh embarrassing! We have no trees of any note within our garden . Our house, now just over two years old was built on the site of a large concrete yard belonging to a farm and therefore no trees were within the area. Actually we have an uninterrupted view of the countryside which is a big plus. However Husband dearly loves his compost heap. At our last house he had four compost heaps on the go with plenty of leaves to satisfy their appetite.
At the beginning of October Husband emptied our lonely single compost heap out on to the veg patch (and good stuff it was too). But Husband needs leaves to start off the new season of compost making - on his regular walks he takes this plastic bag and fills it with leaves - but he likes a variety of leaves - today whilst we were shopping at Waitrose I saw him looking with hunger at the strip of grass covered with fallen leaves in the car park. I said "No" - he said "Oh Yes". To my embarrassment and to the curiosity of the other shoppers Husband proceeded to trawl up and down the car park greedily stuffing his bag with leaves. Oh well it takes all sorts!
