Woman slams bride who stole expensive blooms from her front yard

An avid gardener was left horrified when a bride cut down all of her prized roses and expensive blooms, before using them at her reception. 

The woman, who posted her heartbreaking story in an Australian wedding shaming group, said she only found out the truth about her chopped buds when a neighbour saw photos of a wedding on Facebook.  

‘I walked out into my yard on a Friday morning to find every single rose in my garden cut and my potted impatiens and petunias gone, pots and all,’ she wrote.

‘Naturally, I was devastated. My roses were butchered. Including my extremely rare Amelia Earhart hybrid tea that took me three years to track down. 

‘I filed a police report but there was little they could do. All I could do was prune them back and try to coax them into blooming again.’ 

A few weeks after the incident took place a neighbour told the gardener that she had spotted similar flowers to the ones in her garden on Facebook.  

‘Apparently her neighbour had got married the weekend my garden was looted. The photos were posted on social media,’ she said. 

‘The tip off was the petunias and impatiens in my very distinctive, white painted flower pots being used as centrepieces.’

Upon further inspection she noticed the bride and two bridesmaids were carrying bouquets of pink, white and yellow hybrid tea roses.

‘I am the only person in the region that grows them,’ she said.

‘This bride apparently passed my house and saw my bloomed up garden and went out in the cover of darkness a couple of days before the wedding and cut all of my roses and took pots to use for her wedding.’

When the gardener reported her she was fined a mere $50 for trespassing and nothing for the thieving of the roses.

‘She got a $50 fine. A FINE. That rose cost $300 and had to be shipped from across the country. She butchered the plant so badly, it STILL hasn’t fully recovered,’ she said. 

‘The only words she ever spoke to me were “They’re just flowers. I needed flowers for my wedding and you have a whole yard full”. Yeah, b****. My expensive and rare roses that I’ve spent years cultivating.’

The woman said if the rose thief had only bothered to ask for some flowers she would have been happy to supply them at a reduced fee.  

‘I frequently get requests for a few blooms. I’ve had more than one preteen boy show up at my door with a $1 asking if he could buy a rose,’ she said. 

Facebook commenters within the group were extremely sympathetic of her situation.

‘Some people are absolutely vile. Who in their actual right mind thinks doing something like that is okay,’ she said.

Another said: ‘You need to file a civil lawsuit. Sue her to kingdom come!’
