3yo picked a flower and bought it to me asking “Daddy, what flower is this?”

It was a Peach Leaved Bellflower.

Shame they picked it really, they are nice. But now they know what it is.

@jameschip Very nice flower inded. Is it rare in your area since you didn't want it picked? They seem fairly common around Europe


@jameschip I also prefer letting flowers live instead of picking and killing them, rare or not. But I do have a feeling that (moderate) flower picking, beetle collection etc. increases people appreciation and love for nature, making them lean towards more natural protections later on

@jameschip I hope it's alright with my comments, I'm just curious on your thoughts as you seem to have an interest in the subject :)
