The Chipmunks Ate My Currants

Taste of Summer Stolen

The chipmunks ate my currants

Sneaking round the bush in furtive hops.

Only empty stems remain.

No crimson jelly made for winter days,

I must look elsewhere for solace.

    See iwent all the way to the beginning!!!
    A friend of mine waited all year for her peaches on her tree and overnight the birds ate them all. I felt awful for her. The birds must have been happy!
    It seems like in my old garden I planted something…drawing a blank. Peppermint maybe? Something that kept some of the animals away.seizure brain has given me blocks of time that are blank though
