If I hadn't taken these photos this morning
I wouldn't have any proof
that there is a flower thief in our neighborhood.
I had made this flower bed white and red
until this random yellow daisy-type flower
It kind of stood out in the neighborhood.
In a good way.
What a colorful and pretty flower.
Just look how happy and optimistic it is.
And now it is gone!
I came home, looked out the window and realized that
it is ....no more!
I suspect the neighbor boys who come through
our yard to catch the bus to Summer School.
So, I'm thinking that perhaps this little flower
lives on as a bit of sunshine for a teacher.
Or, maybe it was snatched on the way home
and their mother's eyes teared up
with their thoughtfulness.
Who could blame them, really?
This flower grabbed your attention.
Standing there randomly
so yellow in a sea of white.
I love this flower bed still.
Now so coordinated in red and white.
I'll need to get some mulch down soon
or I'll dislike this flower bed as all the weeds
return too quickly.
The hydrangea is so lacy and delicate.
This is one mystery I have no intention of solving.
Someone obviously was either bothered by this intrusive posey
or needed it much more than I.
