I have a slight dilemma here this morning. For the time I have attended my place of work at the fun factory (notice the use of attended not actually worked), the small areas of grass that border the factory have been left mainly untended and used primarily for a dumping ground for all manner of factory waste. For people who try to look up instead of being downcast when here there has always been an abundance of wildlife to observe. Indeed I've seen rabbit, shrew, fox, bats, crested newt, badger, clouds of swirling starlings, buzzard, kestrel, sparrow hawk and even a green woodpecker for a season.
But since last autumn that has changed as we have been taken over by a worldwide company and apparently appearances are all. So now the these areas are rapidly becoming manicured deserts bereft of so much life. Now my dilemma be this.....the picking of wildflowers is illegal in this country but within this managed desert I came across some chewed n stunted cowslips now obviously struggling with the new cutting regime. So do I leave them to their own devices or do I relocate them to somewhere more suitable where they perhaps may flourish once again?
Well the law abiding side of me says no, why without rules there will be chaos. If we all went doing just want we wanted to do where would society end up? But the piracy side says hang on a mo, free plants for the wildflower area beneath thy orchard John? Methinks that this would be a goodly thing to do.....
Well I guess it's down to your own conscious what you would do, to me it's a no brainer and these will be ensconced in their new home this evening on my back from the fun factory.
Til next time, take care me hearties ahhh haa
