We are not the only ones recycling trash. A few years ago a neighbor had a torn pillow on an outdoor chair. Slowly but surely the stuffing disappeared. The next summer I found some it under a couple of the oak trees. I raked it up and put it temporarily in a old flower pot behind the shed and forgot about it. In late fall it had disappeared. The pile is getting smaller, but since that time every year the stuffing shows up in late spring and disappears in fall, upholstering the squirrels winter quarters. They know they find it in the old flowerpot.
