The Begonias



At the edges of each late-summer day — in the cool mornings and the warm evenings — Rabbit liked to wander slowly through the garden.

She listened to the crickets and the cicadas, visited with the bumblebees, and — to lend a hint of color to the late-summer-scented candles she was making — gathered a tiny pawful of delicate pink begonia blossoms on each of her walks.
