Keep out of garden sign/ cute?

I planted some of my new OT lilies and other unusual stuff in a garden bed that is fairly near our road and next to our driveway.
Now I'm getting a little nervous that people might help themselves. I know we've discussed this on the group before, but I couldn't find the postings....
Does anyone have a cute sign, perhaps rhyming, to tell people that these flowers are for looks only and not to pick? I thought I could print something up on the computer and laminate it.

How about "Please don't feed the snakes"?

RE: Keep out of garden sign/ cute?

hee hee, cute ! Or maybe I'll get one of those motion-sensor sprinklers!

I've got a big motion detector frog that ribbits so loud it echos. It might not stop people, but it would sure let you know when they got too close.

How about: Please don't pick, and never uproot,
We grow by the inch, and die by the foot.

RE: Keep out of garden sign/ cute?

That's cute. My husband also suggested the snake one. I thought of this:

Beautiful to look at,
Delightful to smell,
If you pick these flowers,
You'll go to HELL.

RE: Keep out of garden sign/ cute?

Hell hath no fury like a woman who had her flowers plucked without asking! LOL!

That's a good sign in itself!
