For Frank...your green friend sends greetings!

Hi Frank!

I hadn't made a visit.

but the sun was out today.

Alfresco was still blooming

and I found a place to stay.

I found the petal soft

and I thought I'd take a rest.

The air was warm and damp

and the sleep I had was best!

Til someone came a calling

and she found me in surprise.

I didn't really want to,

but I opened both my eyes.

She left me there just resting

while she craned her neck to see.

Admiring the spots on my back

as yellow as can be.

And when she came back later

I was still just resting there.

She took so many pictures

that she thought she'd like to share!

ENJOY...this little guy was there for hours! still there right now! He must be very comfortable!
