Howdy Neighbor!


Round the Corner

Round the Corner

“Why, howdy dear neighbor! It’s just me, Ms. Fiddleneck, peeking ’round a corner to say hello and peekaboo! A fiddleneck like myself just has to keep busy but it just seems like I’m always running around. Today I thought to myself, I’ll make time for a something important, a simple pleasure. Well, today my simple pleasure is stopping by to say hi to you!” Ms. Fiddleck caught a breeze and moved in closer to the foxtail, who so far had not said a word.

“I know it’s been a while since we’ve stopped and spoken together. And although I’ve dried out a bit, and so don’t look my best today, I decide to chuck all my excuses and stop on over here! I do hope now is not a bad time.”

The foxtail opened her sleepy eyes. She was busy soaking up the sun, but the Fiddleneck’s words were bound to go on and on, unless she engaged in a little neighborly chat time. “Why, dear Fiddleneck. It is such a pleasure to see you. Now is the perfect time to say hello, and I am so glad you did. Please, don’t worry about your dried look. I myself have lost most of my green. That’s just how it is these days, isn’t it?’

Ms. Fiddleneck smiled, nodded in agreement and wiggled happily in her spot among the grasses. No matter what the topic would be today, this chat was bound to make her day because she knew that companionship always made time better spent. She could just tell that today would be a sunshiny golden day – a feel good day!

Ms Fiddleneck and her foxtail neighbor chatted much longer that either of them had intended. By the time they had finished, the sun was high up in the sky and it was almost noon. The both felt drowsy, warmed by the sun and their surprisingly lovely talk. It was turning out to be a very warm hearted day.

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.
