Earthworm Petticoats

My friend, subscriber and kindred spirit, Holly Dilatush, wrote me a bit over a week ago and shared a delightful visual image with me. I asked if I could share it with the rest of our kindred spirits and she thought it silly of me for even asking. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did:

"A week or two ago as I was walking from my parked car toward the Learning Center, with the cherry blossoms in full bloom -- it had rained the night before and was a bit breezy -- from the corner of my eye I saw something moving on the sidewalk.

When I glanced down it apperared to be a moving rosette/bloom. Upon closer inspection, it was an earthworm dressed in "petticoats" of cherry blossom petals -- almost completely covered -- 'stuck' to its moist body at all odd angles. "Petticoats" is what came instantly to mind. An earthworm out for a walk with its finest attire and parading across the sidewalk. It brought a smile and is an image I'll cherish for some time to come!"
