#9 GARDEN SURPRISES
Today I trimmed the grass around the Spirrea bushes out front.
I had to wait until after the dinner meal because it had been too hot to do it during the day. Apparently other creatures were thinking the same way.
I managed to get the job done after one shriek (a snake), one eeeeek (a toad), three ewew (slugs) a yuck (toadstool - to go with the toad I suppose), and an Awaahhhhh (a lightening bug).
The snake was a small hog nose,
The toad had lost one of his toes.
The slugs were disgusting,
The toadstool decomposing,
And the lightening bug blinked as it rose.
Actually this was a perfect ending to a not so perfect day. I love nature and all that goes with it (even with the shriek, eek, ewe, yuck and especially with the Awaahhh).
