Thumbs down Mindless thievery in deepest rural Scotland!

:curse:Bloody bloody hell! Some git has just nicked a big plant out of the front border!!!!! I took DD2 to Scouts and when I got back it just wasn't there. And just after I'd bought new pruning shears to cut it back (still haven't found the old ones!). How mindlessly stupid! Last summer another of these lovely individuals cut the strings to my wind chime I had hung outside my door. Little [email protected]*ts. Such an odd thing to take . . . obviously it is now languishing in a bush down the road somewhere. Now I have to buy another plant or two to fill the gap and the hole that has been left. Simmer:curse:simmer:curse:

Oh I know exactly how you feel :curse: some gits took the tops off my daffodils last year and I was so angry! WHY? It's not as bad as taking a whole plant but still...... I was really loving seeing them first thing in the morning.......

I Wiki'd Abalone and it said it was a type of shell fish. It could be wrong.
