Trouble with Lichen
John Wyndham; Michael Joseph 1960.
A great story. A friend of mine liked it so much he named his chemical company after the scientific institution in the book.

Not just triffids being troublesome, but lichen as well? Gasp! What's next? Petunias? Well, I wouldn't be surprised. I never did trust them.

Don't Jump off o' the Roof, Dad,
You'll make a dent in the yard
Mother just planted petunias,
The weeding and seeding was hard
If you must end it all, Dad,
Then won't you give us a break
Just take a walk to the park, Dad,
And then you can jump the lake!

Ah - what a song! A great performance from Tommy Cooper someone has kindly lodged on
YouTube. Do look.
But Mr. Rubber Ducky is quite right to be cautious - petunias are lethal to most wildfowl.
