There are lovely piles of pine needles in the driveway across the street - now to catch the people that live there and confirm that its fine to take them. This probably confirms my role as neighborhood eccentric since its sadly not a very gardening area!

CECI - Lots of neighborhoods where you can spot the house where a gardener lives. All the rest are just grass. My old neighbor used the pine needles. Lucky for me, the new owner does not.

Oh I wish I could gift you all the needles that fall from my neighbor's pine, although I believe it's a ponderosa, so maybe not as wanted? The wind like we had yesterday brings them down and right into my front garden. Being the only house on the block with a front garden full of plants means that everyone's lawns are bare and EVERYTHING blows right into and stays in my yard.

DANGER — ​I let my Scots pine needles fall on the garden beds. But the white pine needles are a gorgeous color and so soft to walk and kneel on. Not sure if most other needles are that nice. ​

That is a mess but I'm glad you could make good use of the debris. I have to admit when I saw the term "needle park" it conjured an entirely different image - such is the product of living on the outskirts of a very large city.

KRIS — ​I have to admit when I was thinking of terms to add to "needles," that one popped into my head. Yes, totally different meaning, but I couldn't resist.​
