I think saying that removing things to "restore" it to how it was intended is quite an assumption as we dont have a clue what these things are for

If in doubt do nowt.

Im always in doubt. Why an I here? WHere am I going? What will happen next? What day is it?

I would never get out of bed if I lived by your saying...

Hah! My father's advice to me when I left home for the big city, aged nearly 18, was "If in doubt, don't do it". There are times I wish I had followed that advice or at least followed my first intuition about certain people and situations.

I don't describe myself as a pagan (perhaps a pantheist) though sometimes feel like making a small 'offering' back to the earth, especially at summer's end. When I do it is always biodegradable fruit (for the birds to consume) and left somewhere where no one will notice it. Can't see anything wrong with doing that ... each to their own conscience, so long as it does no harm to the environment.

I see my mistake now...I've been leaving that non-biodegradable fruit...lol

Ahh! I've made someone laugh, my day is already proving fruitful. To be specific, I meant summer berries such as blackberries or blueberries - left in an open space, somewhere in the countryside - away from sites, sacred or otherwise.
No doubt someone will find something wrong with that but to be frank I don't give a toss.
