Transcript THE ZEPHYR Monthly Bulletin of the Outdoor Nature Club of Houston, j Te: >cas • February, 1926 Vol. 3, ] -Jo. 2. Spring, with that nameless pathos in the air ■Which dwells with all things fair Spring, with her golden suns and'silver rain, Is with us once again. Out in the lonely woods the jasmine burns Its fragrant lamps, and turns Into a royal court with green festoons The banks of dark lagoons. — Henry Timrod . In recent years, civic societies, newspapers, cartoonists, writers and public speakers, have repeatedly called to public attention, in almost every conceivable way, the disgusting vandalism that sweeps like a wave across the country.as soon,as the coming of spring wakes the fields and woods to life. Natural beauty, in every form and in all seasons, is now recognized as a community asset, to be enjoyed by all. The flat coastal country in which Houston is situated has as its chief scenic features the semi-tropical vegetation and wealth of wild flora that beautify our woodlands and prairies. In any part of America, the thoughtless gathering of dogwood,'redbud and other flowering branches, thus depriving all who follow of the pleasure of seeing them, _s contrary to the nature lover's code of ethics, bu£ here, where flowers and foliage form so important a part of the scenery, it is .an offense against community spirit and -civic pride, as well. Houston newspapers and civic organizations - the Rotary Club in particular -. have emphasized the value of wild flowers and other native ornamental vegetation as factors In the pleasing environment we wish to maintain about our homes. So The Zephyr feels no hesitancy in calling upon its readers, and all who appreciate the beauties of nature, to remember this slogan: "Leave the blossoms on the tree - Help to save our sceneryI" No objection can be raised against the gathering of wild violets and other very abundant.flowers, especially if they are gathered some distance back from the road, where they add little spring, there will be plenty of violets for to the view. This everyone, and if our abundant rainfall has had the expected effect, there will also be yellow jessamines enough for all to have a lovely spray or two without despoiling the beauty of the roadside. A bouquet Of violets will never be missed, but a branch torn from a flowering tree spoils the charm of the whole scene and tempts the next thoughtless motorist to complete the destruction already started.
