A Natural Pickpocket




I "found" these gorgeous gumnuts on a tree in our street... as I stood there, brazenly breaking off branches in the broad daylight, it occurred to me that God might strike me down for thieving from nature (let alone the fact that the local council would probably arrest me!).  I blame it on the sublime shade of pink... something that beautiful needs to be documented for posterity don't you think?

We also have an unbelievable collection of hydrangea bushes opposite our block that I have been known to raid with a pair of kitchen scissors in the dead of night... please tell me I'm not alone in my clandestine floral escapades - anybody else a flower thief?

My friend...are not alone...do you remember my story about my Frangipani branches! I prepped the car and gave him the flashlight...then sent my hubby with a saw into the dark to 'save' those branches...
I must say - they look great out the front of my house ;-)
