My trails seem to be full of mysteries lately.
I’ve been checking for clues everywhere.
So while I was checking for clues on the last mystery, I discovered a new mystery.
A Detective Dog’s work is never done.
I might have to do some modeling and have my person take some new Detective Dog pics before I wear my hat out.
Besides, I always get extra treats when I model.
Okay, back to the mystery.
It’s a Manzanita mystery.
Because baby Manzanita berries always start out green.
And most of the new berries on my trails are coming out green.
They usually get some rosy color later, but when they first appear they’re green.
But I found some berries that just had to be different.
As a matter of fact, even their blossoms were different.
They had pink blossoms.
All the blossoms on the other bushes were white.
And when these berries popped out they weren’t green at all.
They were red.
So I started investigating to find out why these berries, and these only, were different than the rest.
And you know what I discovered when I looked around the other side of the berries?
The berries are red on one side – and green on the other.
These berries are not so different after all.
It’s all a front.
