Freak of NaturePosted: July 1, 2018
It was a hot and steamy morning. The backyard critters were lined up waiting for their breakfast.
I walked outside, not totally caffeinated yet, my eyeglasses fogged over in the humidity. As I trudged across the yard to feed the animals, my skin was becoming wet from the moisture in the air. And that is when I saw it.
A freak of nature. The dark red plant had the wrong flower blooming on it. I dried my glasses and shook my head awake. I then realized it was a zinnia perfectly centered on a celosia plant.
I retreated to the cool of the air conditioning, finished my morning coffee and contemplated on what I had just seen.
