She came over here several weeks ago when the oxeye daisies started blooming.She thought that was fun. So she stuck around to watch the dianthus come on.She just loved the way they stood so tall and vibrant with so many pretty pastel colors.She couldn’t resist watching while the coreopsis bloomed with the dianthus.And those baby snapdragons. Oh, they were fascinating.So delicate yet radiating such strong colors.Stone Bunny could stare at the snapdragons forever.Then. Gee. She couldn’t really leave when the nasturtium started blooming. And it was fun to watch while the sunflowers overtook the daisies.And the gypsophila. Oh my.Well, she knew her buddies were missing her. She knows that it’s more fun in the main garden when she’s there. Poor Puppy.So she told them that she would be back soon. She promised. She just wanted to stay a little longer. Until the liatris blooms, O.K.?You see, Stone Bunny was watching. She knew she couldn’t leave just yet. Not when the Poppies where coming so close to bloom.Meanwhile, an indigo bunting was hanging out on the log. And Sasha came around to visit. Stone Bunny really wasn’t lonely.She was thrilled – just thrilled – when one gaillardia bloomed. She thought they had all died during the terrible winter.And something about the yarrow is comforting to her. So soft and subtle.Now the garden is changing again. The Poppies are blooming while the lamb’s ear stands tall.Oh, how she would like to get right in amongst those poppies…..Just reach out and touch one.And little wildflowers are starting to come up amongst the gypsophila.It’s going to be quite a scene.OH YEAH. The Gloriosa Daisy! How could she forget that? It has been striving to bloom right here by her.And it has succeeded. Bunny wishes she could jump for joy.But now the liatris is almost in bloom.The flowers she came here with are passing on. Dianthus and coreopsis are fading.While oxeye daisy flops.She must leave. Good bye stump garden.
Goodbye snapdragons and poppies.Stone Bunny is going to be with her friends for a while.They will be glad to see her. Plus, she can see that there are lots of gloriosa daisy coming into bloom over there. That is a show she really wants to catch. 🙂
