For Patting Not Picking

Both Liliana and Ish are very interested in flowers this year.  After contending with several beheaded daffodils, I knew my directions not to pick the flowers were falling on deaf ears.  My solution was to tell them that they were allowed to pat the flowers but not pick them.  This solution has worked wonderfully and not one of my tulips has been picked.

  1. What a great solution! I remember a very similar incident from quite a number of years ago now. I enjoy my poor beheaded tulips in a vase in the house that spring.
