Affluent gardeners across the pond may discard old leaves like last
year's horticultural fashion accessory, but we in the north intemperate
zone say wisely to each other "waste not, want not" and "its never too
late to turn over an old leaf". One can easily re-attach fallen leaves
with a dod of superglue. A squirt of spray paint extends the "autumn
hues" display and swiftly converts it to "signs of spring" when one
tires of waiting.


ROTFLOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!! More please Janet.

You one funny woman!

But you labour under a misapprehension or two.

A, I'm not affluent, at least not since I retired a couple of
years ago. Not hurting, mind you, but hardly "affluent". Send
money.

B, I don't discard old leaves. They are sedulously raked up and
turned into compost. As you say, waste not, want not.

But you are right about the veiled accusation that it's too late
for me to turn over a new leaf. I remain unrepentantly attached
to the errors of my ways; progress be damned!

Don't be silly. Of course, they lose their leaves in the fall!
They are deciduous trees native to the north temperate zone.
