Plant Thief

I'm about 5 minutes from the church office, and to get there I walk up a seedy laneway, which has its charms (dumped furniture, graffiti, flat tyres etc). There is one feature though. Along a fence line, an avid gardener has planted a whole series of native Australian trees, shrubs and flowers.

It's quite a spectacular sight, next to the overgrown weeds pushing through surrounding properties.

Today as I walked past, I noticed a piece of paper stuck to the fence, above a bit of empty soil.

It read:

HAVE YOU SEEN THIS PLANT??

(picture of a Waratah)

No?
If not, it means some dirty criminal has stolen it.
KARMA IS COMING TO GET YOU!


So.. my message to you is this: watch out potential plant stealers... the Stanmore Plant Thief is going to get their cumuppance!

*How low can you go? stealing someone's plant!!

plant theives are lousy good for nothings. I once planted a whole stack of herbs in a garden I cleared in an apartment block, and one by one, each night, one would dissappear, until there were none left, just a bunch of holes in the ground. I dreamt of doing a stake out, and catching that nasty piece of work.

Wow, that's crazy Ben! I wonder why they took them one-by-one? Why not just rip em all out at once...
