What a shame …

Something else I found on my foggy walk this morning. The daffodils around the castle had all been picked and then simply strewn on the grass. I was there around 9am, and the daffodils were still relatively fresh, despite a layer of dew, so I can only assume (and from watching too much CSI) that they had been plucked earlier that morning – perhaps kids on their way to school.

Such a waste of such a pretty flower. At least they are perennials, and the bulbs haven’t been dragged out too, but I’m sure there are more people than me who feel a sense of pleasure and peace when they come across flowers growing naturally, and whoever did this obviously didn’t give any consideration to the disappointment this type of mindless action causes.

  1. Awww what! I agree…a waste of such a pretty flower!

    • I know, it really sucked. I was so annoyed. And we couldn’t even collect them up to take home and put in a vase, because technically, that would have been stealing …

      • I would have been annoyed too! And I think if you had given them a nice vase to spend the rest of their lives in then the ‘stealing’ part wouldnt have counted 🙂

  2. A shame no doubt – but great, strong pictures!
