the hitchhiker–a seed’s journey

You are working in the garden and unknowingly some seeds get stuck in the fibers of your sweater. Your neighbor calls from across the road, so you walk over to chat for a spell. One of the seeds falls from your sweater . . .

Finding that you’re out of mulch, you grab your keys and head to the local garden center where another seed becomes loosened and the wind picks it up and sends it soaring as you cross the parking lot . . .

While helping the store clerk load the mulch into the back of your car, your sweater brushes against his jacket and the spiny seed plunges itself into the fleece . . .

On your way into the shed, your nephew, who lives an hour away, stops by to say Hello on the way home from surfing. As he leaves, he gives you a big hug–another seed pins itself to his beach towel . . .

Hitchhikers–spreading beauty!

  1. I love the idea of the hitch hiker. I suppose that can apply to so many things ( like the flea that has bitten me!)

    BTW – I’m trying really hard to like that turkey on the Observation but it’s a hard job! 😉
