    fine in trinity were nobody sits on that front lawn anyway.

    But ive noticed across parks in ireland that this allowing weeds to grow is having the effect that there is nowhere for people esp teenagers and children to sit and play. is this a sly agenda by conservatives to stop loittering teenagers or noisy kids.

        sit on two foot weeds?

        this is a conspiracy to keep people off common green areas. fair enough need to save the bees, but hasnt really been thought through.

      Any parks that I have been in have had a mix of cut and wild areas. I would say the cut areas are 5-10 times bigger than those left to nature.

      Yesterday on the lawn just inside my Gnomes there was a group of teenagers. About 10, some obviously in relationships, just chilling on the grass and listening to the music.

      I had to chuckle, because in my day it was somebody’s tape from the radio on a battered mono cassette/radio player. These guys had a big Bluetooth boom box, likely on Spotify.

      But for all the technological changes in how they listened to the music, how they were with each other is how I remember it.

      I have hope :-)

    I thought I was the bees knees in my college days. Buy a small bouquet from the lady in Grafton Street, run up to a cute young lady (always one accompanied by her mates) and go on bended knee to whomever was in the middle

    Slightly Bemused, somewhat slightly breathlessly: Impulse?

    Accosted lady in shock: No!

    Now, I thought this was the height of cool. Later I realised it was terrifying to the ladies in question. I am not sure how I would react if someone did this to my Little darling. Amongst friends who know my quirks, maybe. To complete strangers, no. But that was what advertising did for you, then.

    Although one did rise to the occasion and say ‘Soft and Gentle’ She got the flowers, and I did get to meet her later for a drink.

        Mine was too big, they had to cut it off. The little one was too little and went through three of them. I have the two that fell off while she was in my arms. Her mother, I believe has the other.

        I would post a photo only I do not know how!

        A friend did once grab me in the presenting position, I must see if he still has it.

        I was slimmer then :-D

    This was a great idea, and so good to see the evidence. Hopefully we’ll see a bit more re-wilding. Winter will come and it will look a bit shabby but the benefits of pollination outweigh that. Think about it for your gardens, folks.
