Lately when my husband comes home from work, there’s this spring in his step.
And as soon as he enters the house, he runs right past me, into the garden looking for his new love:
Walnuts. Big nuts, small nuts and medium sized nuts.
The nuts are a gift from our neighbours tree, that’s generously shedding them into our garden. My husband is very excited about this.
My husband has a thing for fruitbearing trees
My husband has a thing for fruitbearing trees. Our little apple tree is still in shock from the time when my husband shook it, till it dropped all its apples in fright. My husband ran around excitedly collecting them, and then turning them into big pots of apple sauce nobody liked.
But you can’t make apple sauce from walnuts, so now our house is filled with bowls of nuts.
Nutter (person) someone who is extremely enthusiastic about a particular activity or thing:
“Floris is a walnut nut – he searches for them every day.”
