And when I think she’s finished and we can start moving, she takes it out again.
There are some flowers that bloom around here called Indian Paintbrush. They’re pretty hard to miss when you walk by.
I’ve been lucky though. None of them grow on the trails we usually walk on, and I can usually distract my person when we walk by the ones near our trail so she doesn’t notice them.
But you know what those Indian Paintbrushes did?
They smuggled a couple of them right onto my trail and hid them under a Manzanita bush. But even hidden they’re hard to miss because of their bright color.
And my person noticed them.
And then she noticed that those other ones were in bloom. Those ones I told you about that she usually doesn’t notice.
So she had to go off of our trail and get her camera out. And of course she dragged me with her.
But I discovered something about those flowers.
The bushes around those flowers – the ones they tried to hide those paintbrushes under – have some really good smells in them.
I hope my person stays here and takes pictures for a long time.
