Picking Flowers is not the Best Way to Enjoy Them

Lady’s slippers have recently started to bloom all over the parks and forests of Canada.

Picking Flowers is not the Best Way to Enjoy ThemThey are appearing in pink, yellow and other magnificent variations.

You may get the urge to pick these beautiful wildflowers to bring home for someone special but this is not the best idea and can be fairly destructive.

Picking any kind of wildflower is generally a bad idea. When you pick the flower off a plant you take away the means by which the plant is able to perform photosynthesis, which deprives it of its food stores.

If the plant does not get food then it is unable to create seedpods that are necessary for reproduction.

It is also important to be considerate of others. Picking flowers not only deprives others of their beauty this year but also for years to come. Furthermore in many areas picking wildflowers is considered illegal.
