Don't Pick the Daffodils!

The city of Meridian has begun a campaign to try to save the daffodils at the Bonita Lakes Park.

This is a time of year when those flowers are especially prevalent. But city officials say many people are picking the flowers, instead of leaving them for all to enjoy.

They also say that picking them might damage the bulbs and prevent them from blooming again.

"If the daffodils keep being picked, no one will be able to enjoy them," said one park patron who did not want to give her name.

It's actually against the law in the city of Meridian to pick flowers on city-owned property.
