Tragedy

Wanted poster for Camilla thief

Tearful eyes speaking

“Goodbye my Camellia

Fairest flower of red.

Before us you were wisked

Away by a thief,

A mischievious marauder

Living in a tree

Near your fragrant scarlet blooms.

His greed became your demise.”

Choka

I just saw that pesky gray Squirrel who is a frequent visitor to my yard snatch a beautiful red blossom off my new Camilla plant I just bought!

As I watched, frozen in horror, he scurried up the tree to sit on a branch munching on it for his mid morning snack.
