Every now and then I can get Loki to play a game with me. Today is a very pretty day, so we are out in the garden playing hide and seek. It’s my turn to hide.
The color’s not a bad match, but I feel a little exposed.
Likewise these teeny oak leaves. They’re a good match for my favorite outfit, but I still feel really visible.
I could hide under a lyre-leaf sage leaf. They have pretty burgundy markings.
But I get distracted by their pretty flowers.
If I hang about admiring them, Loki is sure to find me! I could hide in the vetch, but the blue-purple clashes rather dreadfully with my clothes.
Oh, I know! I’ll scrunch down here in the wood sorrel.
Well, phoo. Loki found me right away! I bet he’s using magic, which is not exactly fair. All right, Loki, you hide and I’ll find you. One, two, three, four, five, six…
He’s not under the boxwood, or hiding in the oak leaf mulch. Wait. What is that in the ornamental grass the human female planted?
Don’t pout, Loki. It was a good thought. Give this a couple of months to fill out, and it’ll be a wonderful hiding place.
