These lovely flowers are being sold in a side walk stand unmanned by anyone. Here in Guernsey, honesty boxes are pretty common to sell flowers, agricultural produce, crafts, and baked goodies. I really find the concept appealing as it relies so much on the honesty and goodness of people. And also of trust in humanity. Most of the times it is impressive when people do the right thing even when no one is watching although sometimes thefts and vandalism do happen too.

I didn't get a bunch as it is cash only and I did not have any cash on me.

@flapiz Ok. How to much for a bunch? Ours, in stores, about half of these pictured, 4.99 - 6.99 depending which store.

@oahuwriter It's 1.50 for a big bunch. Pretty affordable I may say.

Oh that's sad. But even here too sometimes things go missing. I guess it is a risk worth taking.

@Nakitakona That is sad. Is it due to poverty or is it just because of greed?

I still think most people are good and the evil ones are few.

Are there no honesty boxes there in America? Maybe you can try and be surprised of how people can be honest too.

You can't stop crime unless you see it. Those plants are very nice.

They were very pretty. And really vibrant. I loved the colours scheme. They somehow look good together despite the contrasts.

That is true that some good people live in our world today despite the news media playing the bad news that is broadcast a lot.

Truly. People can still surprise us these days. And it is good to see from time to time when humanity surprises us for the better.
