But I wanted an excuse to put that hat on again. It’s been awhile. Things have been slow on my trails and I haven’t come across any mysteries that need solving.
I think it’s all those flowers out there. My person gets so busy with her camera taking pictures of them that the mysteries just pass us by and I miss them.
Maybe that’s the mystery I should be solving. How to get rid of those flowers – or how to make my person leave her camera at home.
But no, I’ve got another mystery to work on today.
My person has been so busy lately that she hasn’t put any flowers in our garden. That’s okay by me because the weeds still grow there and some of them make tasty treats.
But somebody must have decided that we still need flowers because they gave us a flower that doesn’t have to be replaced every year.
Out in the rocks that line the culvert in front of our yard a permanent flower appeared.
A silk flower to decorate the culvert.
So the real mystery is not who left the flower, but why we got a fake flower instead of a real one.
I like to do the watering and this flower doesn’t need any water.
