These are the words I have said to ALL the kids that play in my backyard. Sometimes though, the flower is just too tempting. For the most part all the kids understand that if the flowers are picked the yard will not be as pretty a place to play. The bees and butterflies will not have a place to eat, nor will the hummingbirds.
This is what happens when little boys have the water on way to hard to fill the birdbath! And, he was really mad at me, like it was MY fault!
