an ethical question about collecting...
I was in Disneyworld last week, staying at their New Orleans style resort. The trees in and around the resort, and throughout the parks in general, had a healthy covering of spanish moss and other tillies.
Now, I would never pick tillies from a tree. But, I was fortunate to find spanish moss and a clumps of tillies on the ground. I brought a small piece of SM and a nice clump of tills home with me.
My rationalization was that the grounds crew (which was quite active while I was there) was going to sweep the plants up and toss them anyway. And when would I get a chance at a wild tilly again? (Hint: never.) Giving them a shot at prolonged life with me has to be better than death in a trash heap, right?
Or, am I a dastard.
