All Creatures Green and Small

Checked my bed at the community garden today. Although my Canna hadn’t bloomed yet, I did have a moment with another garden lover.

I didn’t expect him to be there. But when I arrived he was sitting in the shade on a Canna stem. We studied each other quietly as the hot sun blazed down on us. He permitted me to come closer and even allowed me to take his photo. He was polite and patient. I admired his shape and he basked in my attention.

But he had his limits. When I stopped two feet away from him to take a close-up, he fled the scene with a magnificent jump of fifteen feet. I watched sadly as he leapt out of my life. Our time together was brief but oh so meaningful…
