take flowers from a road side memorial to give to others? I mean, in the space of three weeks, we have had Valentines day, and got Mothers day coming up (Personally, also got the Wifes birthday). Thats three bunches of flowers to buy, which can add up when you have to include the various bunches you have to buy to say sorry etc.
Whereas just going to waste by the side of the road are some quite impressive bouquets who, lets be honest, the intended recipient of is not in a place to appreciate them. Over time, these will also rot away into the mud, or get choked by the passing exhaust fumes.
Surely i wont go to hell for quietly rescueing theses plants and delivering them to someone who would appreciate them with a smile?

Have to disagree with you on this one chris. If i'd have put flowers down to mark some friends / relatives death and some thieving git started nicking them I'd have to force the miscreants head down the nearest crapper and give him swirlies until he begged for mercy / drowned* :twisted:

And steer away from the ones arranged to spell 'RIP'. Take my word for it, they're a guaranteed passion-killer.

Fill your boots Chris. Even if you don't need the flowers, you should vandalise and desecrate them. Roadside shrines are erected by morons who dont seem to realise that we have cemeteries for remembrance of the dead.

I don't think carnations spelling out GRANDMA would see him getting any spousal affection either! 8O :D

There is of course a point where roadside shrines become an eyesore and should be removed. One up the road from me has been there for six months, all of the flowers are rotten and the Chelsea FC flag is now beige from exhaust fumes.

Do it, but get freshly laid flowers!!!!!! All the others will be dirty from the winter salt / general muddy crap.

There is one of those roadside shrines at the base of an oak tree near me, think the person stepped off pavement when drunk, got hit by a car and then hit the oak tree at a rate of knots. Thus providing a demontration of Darwins Law. Its been there for three years and it is starting to annoy me. They have even padlocked and chained the junk at the base to the oak tree so it cannot be taken. I would petrol bomb the thing but do not want to damage the tree.

Oh and once a year a load of nova drivers pull up and stand around trying to look upset and trying to make a few tears roll down their faces, causing traffic chaos and annoyance to roadusers.

I can see it now,

'Happy anniversary/Birthday/Mothers day, here, unwrap your suspiciously large triangular present, You'll never guess what it is....'

all the time all you can hear in the background is the squeal of brakes, a thump, tinkling glass and a constant car horn...

Good idea, not only do you get free flowers but we get to remove one of the 'less than productive' Jermy Kyle watching dole scroungers.

oh, and it could even be fun.
