The Missing Frais du Bois

One day when my daughter was a little girl, I was sketching the leaves of a  frais du bois plant. While sketching,  I’d look up, check out the plant, look down and record what I had just seen.  I was ready to draw the berry, so I looked up in order to collect the visual information needed to put  down on the paper. The berry was gone! My daughter had walked by, picked it and ate it!
