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.
