The Art Of Litter

Every spring I get annoyed with whoever is throwing balls of paper onto the lawn. Then I put on my distance glasses and realize I’m looking at anemone blanda. Short white flowers look like litter in the middle of town.

Drop cigarette butts under rose bushes to protect them from aphids. Follow the butts with a banana peel. Roses like to eat banana peels. I use the cigarette butts that smokers leave along the sidewalk, generate my own peels, and scuffle either into the mulch under the rosebush.
