You have a few delicate houseplants hiding in the bathroom under growlights (so you look at them several times a day while taking care of business) and you hide your pee jug with six drops of blue food coloring in it and marker on it "organic plant fertilizer" so in case you forget to move it because of guests, they don't question it.

when you are watching a movie or TV show and you spot an interesting plant in the background and then you try to do an ID, your mind even turning to proper latin botanical names, and maybe even point and say it out loud if you can actually ID it !
or related you cant help but notice inaccurate details about forests in movies or TV. like the show will be trying to present something as a wild forest, but to you its clearly a manicured park, maybe slightly over grown but not true wildness. you know what real messy unkempt wildness is, and its rarely in film. or say they try to portray an east coast forest, or another locale, but you can tell its actually west coast forest.well you can tell almost all forest in film or TV is west coast forest, mostly BC. now it is strange but i seriously cant help but notice weird discrepancies like that and i find it takes away from the movie magic, to have it be clearly a west coast forest, and they are playing it off like its somewhere else. now i bet most people dont notice this at all, but obviously different regions have very different types of forests, trees, ways...

I wish I could get this many leaves this easily. I have to actually go into the street and sweep my own. I’m sure the neighbours wonder how my sudden desire for a leaf free doorstep ties in with the wild jungle I’m happy to entertain in the garden 😂

If you play your cards right you can get paid to gather up other people's leaves. Or pull a Pearl, and do it for free, that's what I did last year. This year I'm telling my neighbors I'll loan them a leaf blower (and cord) if they tell me when they have a pile and I'll come get it. Works for everyone.
Try asking them if you can have their leaves, they will look at you as if you are crazy, and say "well, YES!"

When you realize you can justify almost anything weird you say to the neighbors with "it's for my garden"

This guy lives about a half a mile away. He has burned his leaves every night for 3 weeks. He fills over a mile of sky with his smoldering leaf smoke.
