Mr. Flower and I recently visited the beautiful but not so peaceful
Heathcote Botanical Gardens in Fort Pierce Coast, Florida.
The gardens are all themed and connected by shady walkways.
I truly enjoyed wondering along the paths and examining the flowers.
But I could not shake the feeling of being watched.
I slowed my paced and quieted my breaths.
Yes. I heard tiny footfalls through the vegetation.
Yes, there were little eyes peeking out at me. Were they guarding the bonsai?
Not only that, I was being followed. I was tailed by one pursuer, then another.
Every time I turned around with my camera, my stalker would sit down and look the other way.
I even tried to hide in the facilities, but there were eyes everywhere!
This lasted longer than Mr. Flower’s patience. He wanted to get on the road toward home.
While I was running for my life, he was lounging on this lovely bench.
He cared nothing about my being spied upon. When I pointed out the culprits, he only laughed.
He wouldn’t know a good mystery if it jumped down from the tree and bit him.
I guess I should share some flower photos from Heathcote Botanical Gardens.
Stay tuned for more.
FLOWER in no Fool.
