Bad omen

This morning, as I was leaving for work, I discovered that the little bed of sunflowers I planted this past spring has been attacked. Last night some nocturnal creature knocked over, bent the stalks of, or uprooted every flower. And just as they were set to start blooming!

I'm not a deeply superstitious person, but I do think it's a bad sign that something I like and have tended so carefully for such a long time can be so easily and mysteriously destroyed.

I'm sorry to hear of your sunflowers. You may have done such I good job tending them that some critter just couldn't help himself. I hope you day gets better!
