Obviously, one cannot constantly stare at the animal constantly waiting for some action - one has to "pretend" to be doing something else. And something else, in RMan's case, was looking at the thousands of teeny, tiny wildflowers which have suddenly peeked their heads above ground.

little flowers dot the ground
What happened in RMan's head as he was looking at the flowers?
He had a romantic moment and picked a bunch for me :)

picked by RMan
As I was admiring the flowers, Rman said to me, "I think there is a female flower in that bunch".
"Turn them over", he said.
|Male and females?|
Can you see the second flower from the left - underneath, the petals are slightly pink, compared to the plain white of the "rest of the bunch".
Unfortunately, I didn't have a vase small enough, so I had to make a plan. I left them in the hollow of a rock which I filled with a little water.
Perhaps the farm fairies will find them...?
