A small moral quandry...
There is an empty lot by my daughter's school that once had two abandoned houses on it. The lot was sold, bought by a construction company, the houses razed and the lot is scheduled for development. It's been empty for two or three months now.
My question is... there are two big clumps of peonies on the lot, as well as some daylily. I've contacted two companies that may or may not own the lot but if they aren't the owners, what do you think the moral penalty is for digging peonies that aren't ones own?
Knowing the way the contractors build around here, they'll just flatten the entire lot before they do the building. I'd hate to see those beauties go to waste when they could have a happy home in my garden.
