Would you do or say anything??

I have a lilac bush in my yard--it is far enough off the road that is on my property; the thing that gets me is people driving by think it is their right to stop and pick my lilacs from the bush. Would you go out and say something to them or just let it go?

  • I'd definitely be saying something, AND I'd get a No Trespassing sign. I can't believe people would do that to you! I had a friend that raised Hydrangeas, they were up against the side of her house, and her house was set back from the road. A lady and her mother stopped and got out, cut off ALL the blooms, with my friend right there telling her to stop, and then tried to leave! She followed them back down to their car, asked for her flowers back and they laughed at her. She took down their tag number and called the cops, and they were arrested at their home, a block over! They had to pay restitution and everything to my friend!

  • I would definitely say something and I would put a sign up saying private property or don't pick the flowers.

  • Put a high fence up or replant it somewhere else out of reach.
