“Shhhhh!” Robert reproached the two hundred guests.
“The diagrams. Plant them exactly.” Papa Bullion said.
Peter awoke to sounds. *That’s not normal.* From the second floor of the round house he looked out and noticed persons scurrying around. *It’s the day of celebration. Let them have fun.* He bathed and dressed. He came down and heard persons hiding. He decided to let them suffer by having breakfast. He fetched a shovel, and exited from the front door.
He came face to face with Papa Bullion who also had shovel. “May your garden always … teach!”
“May yours bring … beauty!” Mr Kelley replied.
The two struck shovels. “Surprise!” sprung up around them!
“A community celebration awaits!” spoke Papa Bullion.
“My lead? But it’s never been choreographed.”
“But it has been watched. Nico, says there is a pattern.”
“Ummm ok …” He went to the front of the raised beds and held his shovel in front of him. The others did the same. The tonal chorus began.
The scene and tonal chorus fades as the scene shifts through a mist to the world of plants. Each plant has a ghost personna which can speak and move.
