the sweetest fruit?

Remember the "thieving grass" post? Well today I met that "grass":
Passing by the field, I saw 3 brown heads quickly dart down to avoid being spotted. In my best stern teacher voice, I ordered them out and told them they should know better than to trespass: "Boys, get out of there this minute--you know you're supposed to go straight home after school!" I stifled a laugh as they dashed to heed my order, awkwardly squeezing back through the narrow wooden slats of the gate. And then I snapped this shot of their smug faces, sticky with mango juice . . . I've heard it said that stolen fruit is the sweetest kind :-)
