Love the story.
Someone did that to me once.
I woke up after a big party at my place to find six half grown banana trees planted in my yard. I had just put up a fence and was making a garden up north and the party was my house warming.
They looked good. But had me puzzled for ages. Never founjd out who did it. One of the boys I thought, as I was one of only a handful of girls in a mining town and the boys were always helping out.
Mind you...... I had to prune the top leaves off for two months to just below fence level when I found out some guy a few blocks over was FURIOUS that someone had come into his yard one night and STOLEN six half grown banana trees!!!
What? I couldn't very well find him and tell him I had FOUND
banana trees in MY yard!!!!
