I swore I wouldn't

One of my biggest pet peeves was seeing children run amok in public gardens. I never minded a bit of youthful exuberance, but I couldn't stand to see kids plucking blossoms or foliage while their parents looked on mutely.

Buddy grabbed these azalea blossoms at the Royal Horticultural Society gardens at Wisley before I could move him out of reach.

I, too, don't like it when kids mindlessly trash plants and flowers whilst their indulgent parents gaze fondly at them. BUT, your little boy is learning, exploring the world around him. The colour is so intense, and the blossoms are right at buggy level - he wanted to know what they were like to feel (and probably to taste) - I think that is a totally different situation, and there will be more blossoms next year, so no lasting harm done.
AND he looks so cute, so intense.
