The Rules Of The Game


Toadstool Steps

Toadstool Steps

The stepping stones were laid out in front of them, a line of toadstools spaced far enough apart to require a leap from one to the other, but it was doable. The little group of wanderers weighed their options. They could forge ahead on the uneven ground amidst the grasses, but the going there was slow and tedious. Or, they could be bold and try the leaping game on the toadstools, which carried a small amount of risk, but would get them far ahead much quicker. The little party was fearful, and very tired. They has been traveling for such a long time. Someone was following them, and they did not sense it was with good intentions. So, the quicker they were out of the area, the better. They shall need to be brave.

Oh, the thrill of making up your own game, especially when there is a chase involved. These weed toadstools, lucky ones,  are the object of a challenge in a made up game of tag, but who has made up the game? Is there a band of weary small wanderers, or is a child just pretending? And if a child, is someone in pursuit? Perhaps dinner time is fast approaching, and as the day darkens to dusk, a little extra excitement is all that is needed to add sweetness to the day – sort of like dessert before the meal. Enjoy the game, all who wander! Many thanks for palying along!

Please come back tomorrow for a new “Weed Image of the Day” and let me know which ones you like.

We and our weeds are so much more than what we first appear to be.
