Is your young wavy-haired young female friend a gardener? Did she recently just plant an orange Potentilla (P. 'Orangeade'), a dwarf little-leaf rhododendron (R. 'Manitau'), a unique dark purple primula (P. capitata), 3 dwarf Monkshood, a silver lace vine, and a native mayapple.
Then chances are she is a calculating thief who brazenly and selectively chose and stole these from my landscaping stock on my south end property between 7:00 & 10:00pm on Sunday night. What was taken was not mere "shoplifting" but a preplanned endeavour. What was taken would not fit into a kit bag and a thorough search of the neighbourhood did not reveal a stache. Obviously she had a plan and escape route.
Presumably she knew that the plants were not free for the taking as unlike deer she fled quite quickly when literally caught in my headlights. It is obvious that the plants were taken for personal use given the quantities and what was taken. I hope she enjoys her new acquisitions. I am not only out of pocket for the plants but will have to make a special trip to the valley to replace them which is time wasted and gas money out of my pocket.
If you know this person please do enjoy your friend's new plantings. They are beautiful and exceptional plants. However please do re-evaluate your friendship. Your friend is a brazen calculating thief masquerading as a gardener!
