Daffodil Thieves in Stamford Hill – Third year running
I look forward to the appearance of daffodils each spring; it cheers me up no end. Yet once again some horrible person has taken them all bar one. I noticed the buds (around 20) for the first time on Tuesday and was intending to put a ‘please don’t pick’ sign up – but too late. Not that it would have probably had any effect.
I wouldn’t get overly upset at losing the odd one to the curious child that doesn’t know better, or the romantic inebriate even, but when someone takes them all its downright selfish. Its not just depriving me. Sited as they are in a raised bed bordering the pavement they bring welcome colour to the whole street.
I’m sure a lot of this must go on – does anyone else know of a similar experience?
