While we slept, a secret army decorated our garden.
They left no corner untouched.
They used nets studded with tiny, clear crystals.
They used their artistic skills to weave intricate designs to delight us.
Everywhere was dusted with the finest crystal powder.
They used every surface to display their masterpieces.
How they must have worked.
They left no clue to their identity.
Nor reasons for their designs
But I appreciate their humour. This flower head was rolled in a tight spiral during the summer.
Maybe tonight they will appreciate some garden soup, that tinkles when stirred.
Or the softest bed of Autumn leaves to rest in. Just for a moment.
So who’s visiting your garden, while you sleep?

teasel, ivy, box, cosmos, borage, thistle, rose leaves, fuschia,
Bramley apple tree, Lacy Scorpian weed, garden soup (contents unknown!)
and leaves (oak, hazel and beech)
