Spring Flowers

Spring is here and with it comes the crocuses and daffodils.
Clumps of Daffodils in public areas like parks and other communal space look lovely and people like to see them.
Unfortunately so do children and encouraged by their mothers proceed to pick a bunch for home.
This quickly leads to a patch of short green stalks which is far less attractive to other people.
Do these people think that they alone have a right to enjoy the spring flowers?

Re: Spring Flowers

Get the councils to put up notices, that the public can take pics of the blooms, not take the blooms home or face prosecution Cheesy

Re: Spring Flowers

Perhaps Strat Jung-un should decree that children who pick flowers in public places will be shot ?
