The Pidgeon Chronicles, Missive IV
Perhaps you missed missives I-III, I know I did [See Footnote].
Nevertheless, I am here to report I have suffered enough!
As an Urban Volunteer, I embarked on my annual Tree Bed planting obligation, and I completed my task 11 days ago:
- Plant shade-adoring impatiens: Done!
- Plant with a growing moon: Done!
- Plant in loose soil: Done!
- Water and fertilize well: Done!
- Plant 6 inches apart: Done!
By now there should be happy buds and a few new blooms. But No! I have simply watched the existing blossoms wane away with the waxing moon.
Well!Later that same afternoon I discovered Pigeon sitting on one impatiens and nibbling on another.
Stricken, I yelled and shooed. Pigeon moved a few inches. I flapped and waved, and that Very Pigeon hopped to my next tree bed over! I ran indoors to notify the Pigeon Police, but by the time they arrived with the net, that Very Pigeon was gone.
Well, this happened three times in a row, and now the Pigeon Police will not even answer their cell. I mean, I am not crying Wolf! And I am not crying Pigeon! I need some simple help!
Desperately in need of rest and solace,
Your Urban Volunteer
[Footnote] You may locate one or more of these missives in the PidgeonParallax archives. These are particularly useful if you have several conflicting views of a pigeon.
