Furthest adventures of the flower spy

Something terrible stalks these neighborhoods, some fiend.

Something strange and intransigent. Something anarchic and ungovernable.

And with the city broken by pandemic, by Trump cultists, by Police crimes, and by burning and looting, no one is there to stop him.

What a time for a Superhero!

"Sorry about the trouble. I'll just be moving along. I have an appointment with a peony."

"Don't worry about it. I sometimes take a picture or two of flowers with my phone. Want to see?"

"Better not. Social distancing and all that."

"Right. Right. Er, see you around then."

Yes indeed. 

Yes you will.

Whether you want to or not.

Only New Mexico can stop him now.

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.
