Ouch, watch my leaves!
You’re stepping on my stem!
Your perfume is too strong!
Quit shoving!
Who put you in charge?

Your buds are in my face!
Has anyone seen my bee?
I’m missing my bee, too!
Will you all be still?
Can’t we all get along?

Why should we?
Huh! It’s her fault!
That’s right.
The gardener did this.

Notes: Do you ever feel like your efforts have the exact opposite effect than you intend? Helping others is a perilous business. Are one’s good intentions a defense? Or the nail in the coffin of blame? Sometimes it’s better for the gardener to leave the clippers on the shelf. Have a magical day!

  1. Aww, yes I am underappreciated at times, too. Family takes us hard working Mom’s (and Nana’s) for granted. I would be “on strike” once in awhile. . .
    Beautiful flowers! Your garden has such beauty and lovely results.
