“Hey! What’s all that shaking?” Somebody’s opening the bag.
“Oh, wow, daylight!”
“It’s so crowded in here”
“Whoops. We’re being poured out. I guess I’m going in the dirt. I hope it’s warm in there. Last year it was cold. I just laid there for a long time. When it’s warm, I start to grow right away. All I need is sunshine and water, and T.L.C.”
“I hope I’m a beautiful plant this year. There are a lot of us, and so many colors: coral, red, purple, lilac, white, yellow, pink… even green. In about six weeks I’ll be a colorful flower – me and a couple-hundred of my buddies.”
I’m so happy to be a zinnia seed.”
