A day when the Whatchamacallits were out for collection

The streets are full of brown whatchamacallits full of garden waste…this time of year, people are busy in their gardens…all those fallen leaves

linked to One Word Sunday at Debbie’s here


  1. And in summer you put out the green thingies, don’t you? 😉 Very colour coordinated!

  2. yay you came across some whatchamacallit, or are these thingmejigs?!

  3. I think they are just bins Sue. No need to get melodramatic. And I hope they are not full of Leaves. Leaves make lovely leaf mold.

  4. Shame we couldn’t coordinate our bin colours around the country. It is very confusing when on holiday or moving house.

  5. And I meant to say what great colours – a nice view without the whatchamacallits!

    We don’t have brown ones in my area, only green and black. How come we miss out? I try and bag up the leaves as they are swept into my garden by the wind and hope that they turn into good leaf compost within six months.

  7. Still so colorful, ours are nearly bare.

  8. We have three different colours, Green, (General waste) Grey, (recycling) and Brown (Garden waste). Nearby towns have completely different colours for the same things, including bright blue! I have settled on just referring to them as ‘Wheelies’. We have to pay £46 a year extra if we have a brown one!
    Best wishes, Pete.

  9. We do have leaf pickup in my neighborhood, but it’s not as regular as it should be. So there are piles and piles everywhere! I don’t mind them so much — it’s fall, after all.

  10. My conversation is full of whatchamacallits!
