ROTHERHAM, England, April 7 (AFP) - A gang of thieves who were ordered to
plant daffodil bulbs as part of their community service have seen their
revenge flourish this spring. The group were told to plant hundreds of bulbs
along one of the main roads in Rotherham, in northern England, last autumn.
But when the bulbs sprouted this week, the blooms spelled out the words
"Bollocks" and "Shag" in letters four feet (1.3 meters) wide.
Residents living on East Bawtry Road, which carries thousands of visitors
a day, said people were coming from miles around to take a look at the
flowers. One, Alan McCue, 48, said: "I can see the funny side, but it
doesn't really create a good impression of the town. They planted hundreds
of bulbs so we're all a bit worried about what might come up next."
