Thank you Anget it came from a packet of wild flowers for my front garden but its all full of tall weeds and grasses now as its hard to maintain with the dead leaves and tree seeds and rubbish from next door church.

People and their rubbish are a real bane. When did we become so lazy? Take pleasure in your back garden!!

LOVELY FLOWER. FROM WHAT I'VE SEEN ON THE TELLY ABOUT RUBBISH BEING LEFT EVERYWHERE, ON BEACHES AND IN PARKS AND COUNTRYSIDE, THOSE PEOPLE OUGHT TO BE ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES. IT ONLY NEEDS THEM TO TAKE AN EMPTY BAG TO PUT IT ALL IN AND TAKE HOME TO PUT INTO THEIR OWN BINS. THE TROUBLE IS THAT IT AFFECTS THE ENVIRONMENTS AND THE WILDLIFE THAT LIVE THERE. I ALWAYS TAUGHT MY SON NOT TO THROW IT DOWN IN THE FIRST PLACE, FROM WHEN HE WAS LITTLE. IF IT WEREN'T FOR THE FACT THAT GOOD HEARTED PEOPLE GO AND LITTERPICK, WHAT WOULD IT BE LIKE THEN.

Thank you Anget I do enjoy my back garden. I live next door to a Nigerian church taken over from very old baptists.
The lady who is head of a community garden clearing team cutting the grass and weeding for the church told me if she did nt come with her team they would let it all over grow and not bother .
She was very angry they let it over grow from her brake of a few months now they dont come and they employed by contract another gardener who will not weed just cut the grass so all their bind weed comes in and strangles my plants in the my back garden .

Answer to your question I started to notice end of the 60s and starting of the 70s Anget when rubbish bags were dumped under street hedges also now wardrobes beds three piece suites which I still see in certain areas here now with new immigration I even took photos of one area and placed it on a site I knew councilors go on . If you bring in vast numbers from 3rd world countys then expect a third world country here which now has taught our kids to be like them .
What bothers me is the vast rat increase here and what disease impact that will have.

I was watching a program about 6 months ago of those immigrants that came in back then which was about northern towns and cities they are now teaching others coming here telling them they can not just dump beds washing machines wardrobes three piece suites out on the street as this is Britain it seems they now have pride in their areas.

I also noticed a bigger increase with rubbish since take a way food shops opened here. I live by a canal and nature reserve also a foot ball stadium the rubbish dumped in the canal and tow path and the nature reserve was appauling now the foot ball team has left since the rugby team has taken over there is hardly any rubbish nor no grafftee on the canal side hand made sculptures.

Yes also making bar b que s which are not put out causing fires in our country side burning an acient tree I watched country file on this Lindak. I always taught my children to take rubbish and bin it or take it home but as I ve said above to Anget our children or grand children mix in schools and learn from others who come here who dont bother in their own country so this is what we get. To prove my point about influence most of our children now dont even speak our own language or have an English accent we use to shake hands now it hugs like the Afro American do and speak or anwering a question with a question like Australians do I often feel like asking are you ashamed to speak in your own tongue of English.
