More of a blather-let

snippy also asked me:

Should I keep trying with my plants, or resign myself to theft?

(For background, see her post on the subject.)

If someone repeatedly stole my plants, I'm sure I'd give up eventually, or plant poison ivy; but from this distance I find myself thinking "Someone who steals plants must really need them. Maybe I will continue to provide them with plants and consider it a sort of spiritual gift to the universe, a declaration of my faith that everything is connected and therefore what does a plant-stealer good also does me good."

I'm curious about what sort of plants are getting stolen? (I didn't see that info in her post.) Perhaps another sort of plant would be less appealing?

I don't know that plant stealing is such a problem here, but I do remember reading about rampant political sign removal. The key to prevention seems to be to smear the signposts with shit. I wonder if this would work for the plants, too?

Smearing the signs with shit would seem to send a double message about the endorsement involved.

I don't know how important the color scheme is to you, and I don't know where you live. But you might want to think about daylilies or coleus. You can find the former in orange and yellow, and the latter in hot pink and yellow--maybe orange, too. Or cannas--mine are yellow and orangy red.

Stealing basil really SUCKS!!!! (I know some people love dahlias; I have no attachment to them.)
