A little girl goes to the store with her father. They go to the store
to purchase flowers. They are
making a garden. She is very excited. She can't hardly wait to purchase
and plant the
flowers. She watches the flowers as they go across the chechout
stand at the grocery store. She watches the flowers as they walk down
the street to catch the bus. She holds on to them tight as the bus goes
over bumps and humps. People on the bus look at the flowers. It brings
a smile to all of their face.
When the bus reaches her building, they get off the bus. She carries
the flowers into the bulidng and up the stairs.
She is very exhausted by the time she gets to the top of the stairs.
Her father reaches for the front door to open it for her. She
rushes in and hurries her father. He sets up the paper
towels and the trowel to put the flowers in. They also bought potting
soil and planting mix for the flowers. She planted pansies,
daisies, daffodils, gernaiums, and tuplips. They were purple, white,
yellow, orange, and red. It was beautiful!
When the trowel was
all finished, her father set the flowers in the box outside the window
for all to see. Butterflies found the garden as a resting place.
Ladybugs visited as well. People who passed by looked up. They loved
the colorful garden. It brightened their day. She also helped her
father with the ice cream
and birthday cake. It was her mother's birthday. The garden was her
special surprise. She loved it!
