Leia is waging war on the Army of Zinnias. Their training base has been located in my backyard for over twenty years.
About a month ago the volunteers started to emerge from the trenches where they had wintered over. Leia immediately pounced on the unsuspecting troops. She dug into their trenches and uprooted their supplies.
The General put out a desperate call to the Horticultural Army for reinforcements.
Five hundred zinnia troops were dispatched and deployed to the demilitarized zone where they trained in canine deception tactics.
The odds are not good.
Leia versus an army of 500 zinnias . . . the battle rages on, one platoon follows another in an unrelenting assault.
The battle is sure to heat up during the long days of summer.
Zinnias are celebrated for their bravery and hardiness. They are most likely to triumph.
Ongoing reports from the Seed & Stem Channel will keep everyone informed about events occurring on the front lines.
Stay tuned . . .
When Leia abandons the battle, she turns to snooping. Heidi even suggested we call her Snoopers.
She scoped out the dishwasher when my back was turned and took a spoon.
Hey diddle diddle
It’s Leia and the fiddle
And the cow jumped over the moon.
A little dog laughed to see such a sport
And Leia ran away with the spoon. (apologies to Mother Goose)
Then I mistakenly trusted the little stinker, and she grabbed the current issue of the Chronicle of the Horse.
Life is never dull with Leia around.
