Back in my PT days there was a lady in Mosman who used to walk every morning with her scissors and I often passed her, empty handed on the outward journey, as I went running off down some bsuhtrack. I would run 12k whilst she pottered 2 or 3 and we would pass the same point on return with her looking ready to go down the aisle with her stunning bouquet she has collected on her travels. I was shocked in my early days but as time went on I thought how nice it actually was that she would take what hung over a pavement and dress her house daily with new buds to make her smile.
I am lucky to have a garden with a fair few flowers but Kitty and I have taken to going on a wander after school and collecting from the verges around our neighbourhood. I still feel like I am stealing even though I know they belong to no one but it is worth the moment of shame once I have them home around my house.
Do you 'borrow' from your local area?
