Serious Crime in Suburbia

Someone is stealing my flowers.

I wrote about it last year. This year, the thief- or thieves- have become more bold and are digging up Dalia's and Delphinia's left and right.

Who steals flowers?

I decided I'd get a sign. Video Surveillance, Don't Steal the Flowers. The response? Three more plants dug up and whisked away.

Yesterday? We installed a real live video camera on the fence. The cost of the system is about the same as the cost of the flowers nabbed to date.

And when I catch my pansy pilferer on tape? I'm going to call the local paper. I am going to freeze a frame and blow up their photo and hang it on the fence.

Yeah, I'm mad.

We had someone steal our pool rafts AND help themselves to the tomatos growing in the garden...
