Today, those green leaves have red things poking out all over. I sniffed around trying to figure out where those red things were coming from, but I couldn’t figure it out. I guess I’d better put on my detective hat.
While I was still pondering all those red things I found these little round balls all over the Manzanita bushes. These are the same bushes that had flowers on them in January. Where have all the flowers gone? I’m not sure but I think those little round balls took them away.
Detective Dog is getting really flustered now. Red things and round balls. What next? I walked on a little way and almost stopped in my tracks. The Hanging Gardens of Babylon, right on my trails. Juniper trees don’t have flowers, but this one had flowers hanging all through it. I’m not sure if I can get to the bottom of this one. I might have to climb that tree to do it. Maybe if I’m really nice to Scratchy he’ll climb it for me.
I was about ready to give up and go home. Too many mysteries for me. Then I saw it. A symphony of daisies with a globe mallow conductor. Maybe they can sooth my troubled brain to sleep with their music.
