Who Put These Flowers In The Blue Bird Bath?

by Jon Katz

Every once in awhile I come out of the house and see some beautiful flowers floating in the bird bath, almost always after a storm. Being naive about nature, I used to think they were blown there in the wind.

Maria denied any knowledge of the flowers, but she says I am drawn to color like bees to pollen. This week, the flowers floating in the blue birth bath were especially evocative.

Maria again¬† denied any knowledge, but Maria cannot lie, even in jest, and she had that twinkle in her eye that reminds me of Alfalfa in the Little Rascal. I have this thing about not taking staged photos, but these were so beautiful I couldn’t resist.

I crawled out into the garden – under her watchful eye –¬† and took the photo. The flowers, however they got there, looked so peaceful and natural.
