HFF. SORRY! DELETED BY MISTAKE.

HFF. SORRY! DELETED BY MISTAKE.
I DO WISH THE DELETE BUTTON WAS FAR AWAY FORM THE EDIT BUTTON. APOLOGIES TO ALL THOSE WHO ADDED VERY INTERESTING COMMENTS. :o((
OK; again ... I passed this way half an hour later and the whole lot had been strimmed. The council do this every year, apparently as it is a 'fire risk'. Why they can't wait until after the colourful spring wildflower display completely beats me!
TONIGHT I WILL SHOW THE AFTER EFFECT. THOSE OF A SENSITIVE DISPOSITION SHOULD WAIT UNTIL TOMORROW BY WHICH TIME I WILL HAVE DELETED IT (deliberately this time!).

By accident, Eva. It's the last thing I wanted to do but if you have arthritic fingers the edit button and delete button are too close!

A glorious display of poppies..............I can't see how there any more of a fire risk than anything else growing there. Vandalism!

HFF to you Andy. I hope you have a lovely weekend. Stay safe and well..!!

Thank you, Sarah! Not sure I understand. I deleted this shot by accident earlier today so this is it's second showing. I have no intention of deliberately deleting it!! I will soon, however, post a shot of the result of the destruction and that I will delete tomorrow morning as it is horrible!

Lovely to see this show of beautiful, colourful poppies Andy. A crying shame that they were destroyed.

Many thanks, Carol. Yes I was appalled when I saw them all gone just half an hour after I took the shot. The later shot is a few days later when I decided to record the loss for posterity!

Gotcha'.. on your update thanks - Andy..... as usual the 'street view' is up there on 'Google Earth' so I took a wander around.. it appears a pleasant residential area with the town virtually adjacent ... very handy !.... // Best wishes from > Dj.... UK.

Thank you for your re-comment, Dave! Much appreciated!
Yes, but what streetview doesn't show easily is just how hilly it is. Any walk into the shopping centre involves a trudge back uphill all the way!
Also where the poppies are (or 'were') a huge hedge is showing which hasn't existed for a long time. So I went and had a mosey myself with Streetmap close by here at where I now live and none of the major changes my sister and her husband made to their front garden have been started and that was over 5 years ago which shows how old these Streetmap images can be!

Haha, a trick that I have done on several occasions Andy, so here is my comment again. A great selection of spring flowers here and a great pity that they are cut down in their prime to tidy things up. Typical English action too. Well done.

Belated HFF, enjoy the weekend. Herb

Beautiful shot, Andy.
Really strange when wildflowers are trimmed while they're still blooming.
Anyway, happy weekend to you.

All too common in my experience in both Spain and Cornwall.
In Cornwall, the country lanes are gloriously alive with colour in May. When they are at their absolute best, the council sends out the strimmers. The reason? to avoid large litigation costs as townie summer tourist drivers fail to negotiatie the narrow and overgrown lanes. A pity, but there is at least some logic to it!
