23. Leaves

Leaf litter is always an interesting subject.  Add an old stone wall to get double your money.

    1. 'Secret Garden' the very words conjure delight.

  2. Leaf litter is good on the forest floor, but not in a suburban garden. Not MY suburban garden at any rate. Which reminds me: I want to indulge myself with a (mini) mulcher this year coming.

    1. Mulchers are fine but only if you are doing leaves. I find the home variety quite useless for even the smallest twigs despite it supposedly being able to handles thin sticks.

      I don't really know why you bother though. I just put them on the garden as is and they work fine. I guess not so good if you want a tidy looking garden. I just let them all fall and sweep once - the autumn leaves that is. The pine needles and lillipilly leaves are a nuisance because they fall all year. I sweep them every few months.

We were having a coffee at the bakery and I noticed a sign on a hotel saying it was a Cobb and Co coach stop.  That got me wondering if there was a hidden Royal Hotel in the town.  A quick google revealed not that hotel but this derelict one as the former Royal.
