On Friday night, we had friends over for a little garden party, and after dark, I leaned back in my chair and shot a glance at the garden.
“The zucchini plant!” I exclaimed. “It’s standing straight up! Straight up! Look at those four leaves!”
Everyone nodded indulgently and continued drinking their beer and talking about other things. I fumbled for my camera.
“Are you going to take a picture?” Steve asked. “For the blog?”
“Of course I am,” I said. “People should see this! I’ve never looked at the garden at night—this must be what happens to the zucchini leaves after dark!”
I clicked away, sending flashes like lightning into the garden.
And then, on Saturday, while putting together my weekly Where’s It At post, I looked back at some of the old pictures.
With some chagrin, I must say that yes, indeed, those leaves also stand up during the day. I just forgot.
