A picture book story of the flower spy

Here is the legendary and dreaded flower spy roaming the sidewalks of a ravaged city. He is disguised as a mild mannered photographer.

"Hee hee hee" The flower spy cackles, for he has spotted a likely flower. It's yellow with white petals.

Hey! Flower spy. What kind of flower is that?

"I don't know." Says the flower spy. "I'm a flower spy not a flower scientist."


"God bless you." Replies the flower spy. 

He's joking. But don't drop your guard.

"Why shouldn't I drop my guard?" Asks someone who has now entered the conversation.

Because he is the flower spy. He can be very charming and then zap! pow! He is taking a picture of a flower!

What kind of a flower is this?

I don't know, I'm not a botanist either.


Sorry. We don't have a lot of readers here at clerkmanifesto so we borrowed this one.

Hey, there is a bug on this flower!


No no no. Stop him. Stop the flower spy. It is not cool. HE IS TAKING PICTURES OF FLOWERS! 





"You and what army?"

This one.

For taking pictures of flowers?

Yes, more or less.


Are bunnies okay?

  1. You and that camera are an amazing team Love the bunny picture. And the insect. The flowers...of course; at this point, they are a given.


If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
