    I totally agree with you. My father was allergic to bees and had a kit in case he got stung. He had to use it one day and it was awful the way he swelled up.

    Yes, planting smartly & always in considerations of neighbors, post persons, delivery people & especially our four legged fur babies! Be thoughtful & kind to everyone makes a happy garden! Rose bush thorns& streaming vines can also cause hazards to others!

    YES ! choose things that do not bloom, have thorns, stickers (like cactus or bouganvilla) to plant next to your mailbox.... and keep whatever you plant trimmed... so the carrier can see the address number on the box (the replacement carriers need this done especially)

    How about fake flowers and vines from the dollar tree

    This is a true hazard to mail delivery workers, in all honesty I had never given a thought about this but will now do something about it. Fake flowers will work well in this circumstance, or something non-flowering.
