I Heart Celery
Celery was forty-nine cents a bunch at Aldi. Guess I never paid much attention before when I chopped off the end of a bunch. The pretty star seems to have embroidery blanket stitching around the edges. Now I'm wondering if every bunch looks the same, or if they are fingerprints and snowflakes.
I didn't put a stake through this heart. We speared it on the stainless steel skewer to be a treat hanging in the cage for our classroom pet rabbit. The rabbit pulled at each section with impeccable manners, like he knew how to eat artichokes with lemon butter.
