People helping themselves to cuttings from the yard........
I went out to hang some bedding on the line, when I spotted someone trimming the rasberry bushes that border our property and the baseball park.
When I asked what they were doing they said that since the rasberries were not blooming now they didn't think taking a few cuttings from it would hurt, or that I would mind. I will admitt the rasberries needed cut back,and if it were my neightbors or the city that were cutting them back because of the fact that they were over the property line, I wouldn't have said a word.
I told them they could have just came and knocked on the door. I would have been happy to let them dig some. ( I did offer this to them after catching them.) I told them they could take 8-10 nice size starts because they really needed to be thinned. I also told them they were welcome to some of the volunteer white and purple lilacs. But they might want to wait till it rains to get those because they would come up so much easier, and to please be sure someone was here when they did it.
Why do people do this on private property! I know I've been guilty of snatching seeds from the park and hospital, but I would never take any cuttings from anything.
LIFE IS GOOD,
