Now, this is funny. If you enjoy my puffball shrubbery posts. The thing is, I had knee surgery three weeks ago and for about two weeks I spent a lot of time with my leg elevated in bed, laptop on tummy. Watched every Brad Pitt movie available. Saw the actors and directors commentaries on Fight Club, a movie for which I now have a boundless appreciation and can talk semi-authoritatively about almost every camera angle. Especially the one with BP in the bathtub talking to Edward Norton about whatever it is they were talking about...anyway, that's another story. I allowed my mother to wait on me shamelessly and didn't see my kids for a really long time.
Little did I know I had a guardian of the foliar variety watching over me. Just out of view beyond my bedroom window.
Once I was able to hobble around again I looked out over the next-door neighbor's yard, and here's what I saw.
Avenging angel sent to keep an eye on my movements or innocent shrubbery keeping watch---you decide.
