PETER PIPER

Do you remember tripping your tongue over

Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers;
A peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked.
If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers,
Where’s the peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked?

It came to mind when I noticed several red shapes scattered across the road … and then some more.

A closer look revealed them to be pepperdews that had already been de-seeded.

They must have fallen off a loaded truck travelling over our potholed roads. All but the flattened ones had disappeared by the following day: someone found a bounty of peppers ready for pickling!
