Rescue horror stories

Years ago I used to make my children snatch bits of likely plants that were "sticking out" of a yard.  We would drive to wherever there was a likely candidate, and I would tell them that "they won't arrest children...." and "no one will notice a tiny bit missing".... They would sink down in the car seat and whine, "no - please - not again!"  Sometimes I would pass an interesting plant for even several years, saying to myself that I should try to get a start - and suddenly it would be gone, a victim of homeowner disapproval or a bulldozer.  So this is a good deed we're doing, as long as the original can spare some of its parts.  -Cynthia W Mueller
