Years ago the county decided to turn our tree lined unpaved path into a real road. the first step was to bulldoze every tree that was growing on the easement. I cried so much that day.

The flowers are wonderful....

Why is Nature always the first victim of Progress? The only solace is that, after watching the TV series "Life After People", we know that Nature will always win in the end. Your flowers just prove that!

That's devastating! I think I would have had someone chain me to the tree, but I'm an old Berkeley radical. The flowers are beautiful. You can't keep Mother Nature down for long.

My mother in law has a flower garden! She's always picking fresh flowers and putting them in a vase in the kitchen and bathrooms, I really love it!

Oh my! What on earth could the State have done? At least they left the beautiful flowers untouched.

I'm still sick over the state destroying your front yard and killing those trees you lovingly planted oh so long ago...but the pictures of the gorgeous flowers? Priceless! :)
