A smartly dressed skunk ambled down from the high country. Lacking dexterity in her bear-like paws, she had recruited her chipmunk pal. He formed a velvety toque from a Common Mullein leaf, then spiked it with grape vines, Arizona Cudweed, and rare curly Ponderosa Pine needles. “One in a squillion goes haywire,” he chirped. “For a breath of magenta I used Fetid Goosefoot, which forms a pink haze over the forest floor in the fall. Oak galls and juniper berries made super baubles.”
As expected, everyone was carefully polite, gushing over the skunk’s hat and sensuous tail, lest she make a stink.
