My next door neighbour has a real way with plants and she has made the property one of the nicest gardens around. She puts her heart and soul into everything she grows and everyone who passes by compliments her work. One morning last week she woke to find that someone had cut the blooms off all her tulips. We live in a residential area of a small city, so deer were not the culprits here. Two days later her new rod iron trellises, a birthday gift from her partner, and a glass hummingbird feeder were missing. The trellis were found bent and tossed in another yard up the street and the feeder was smashed on the sidewalk.
Earlier this year, on separate occasions, both our houses were ‘egged’ and last year they were hit with paintballs.
We are so disheartened by these senseless acts and cannot understand why anyone would stoop to do such things. It is too bad when one must check you property each morning to see whether more damage has taken place during the night.It is likely a couple of individuals responsible for this but they clearly do not have an idea of how much dispair this causes.
I hope no one else is experiencing similar situations.
