The balcony garden was getting plenty of sun so the guardian was able to serve pretty blooms for Herman’s lunches. Petunias, with their sweet smell and folding petals were a favourite and always the first to be eaten. Still leery from the time the guardian tried to feed him grocery bought ones, Herman would only eat pansies if their petals were still warm from the sun’s rays. And geraniums didn’t appeal to Herman at all and were always left untouched. It didn’t matter to the guardian if Herman ate his flowers or not. She just enjoyed watching them grow and having them around.
