I've been known to take seed
heads from public places too. A few stella d'oro lily
pods from a strip mall, a few other seed
heads from outside a large music store (Don and his friend were teasing me the entire time!), a few other places.
I've also dug up small plants
in ditches on the roadside - public property - never someone's yard. I got some yarrow and a tall phlox that way.
I am also tempted to weed
while I'm out, but I think I'd get locked up if I tried - it's not the kind of neighborhood where one can do that. Of course I can't stop myself at my friend's house either - like mel!
I do also give away plants
- often. One year, I had sooooooooo many baby tomato plants
that had reseeded, I gave them to the mailman, and anyone I could pawn them off on! That's what saving those 4 inch plastic nursery pots are good for!
