short story of a Daisy and a Bachelor Button..and their
friendship which opened up a whole new world.....

Standing out in a field alone ,a little white flower named “Daisy” longed for someone to share the sun, rain ,wind , moon and stars.

One day a blue flower named“ Bachelor Button” entered her world. and they became friends.

She knew by his name that he was not the propagating kind, but that didn’t stop their relationship .She called him “BB” short for best bud.

The seasons of spring, summer and fall they enjoyed the sun, laughed in the rain and held on fast in the fall. 

 Winter was long and hard they were both covered in a blanket of snow, not knowing whether they would ever see each other again or even survive .

The snow fell and dumped even more snow and then came the ice and more snow , this went on for months

The sun shone brightly that first day of spring, the birds were flying and singing, even the bugs started crawling around.

Within a few days the warmth of the sun melted the snow and out popped a little white head…oh, how beautiful the sun feels, she said,

when a voice remarked ,where have you been ? I’ve been waiting days for you to come out, said the little blue flower and they both chanted….

Hurrah ! we made it !!!!

The snow was completely gone in a few days and the birds started building their nests ,the bugs were crawling around and the butterflies

began to visit the two flowers.

I wish there were more of us Daisy said, me to said BB. They laughed as the sun and wind blew through their leaves.

Then it started it would rain for a few minutes then the sun would come out, it did this for weeks..

One morning when they awoke the field was filled with the smell of flowers…they were everywhere.

Daisy and BB looked at each other and said what kind of flowers are these.. they’re not white like daisies they’re not blue like bachelor buttons, they are different

than us ,but they are very pretty colors……little did they know the birds and bugs carried away the seeds from the two of them and the butterflies

( when they were caterpillars) buried them under the soil.

The seeds were carried by the winds many miles away and Daisy and BB never knew.

Some of the seeds landed in sandy soil where they grew, but had shallow roots and struggled to stay alive,

other seeds landed in dirt where their roots went deep into the soil and they flourished and blossomed and blew in the wind and produced more plants.

The luckiest ones landed in fertilized gardens where they grew even bigger and stronger , although they faced danger everyday…the gardener !!!!

The gardener named the little plants…WEEDS……

The gardener pulls the weeds out of his garden so they don’t choke the flowers, which cost a lot of money and require a lot of maintenance.

However there was one gardener who saw all her friends spending so much time and money on constantly weeding their garden that

they didn’t have enough time to admire and enjoy the labors of their love.

So she set out to give a home to all the “weeds”.. thus she provided a place where they could fit in and multiply, they required no maintenance,

and the rain provides their water and butterflies, birds and bugs love them…

Some of these weeds can even be beneficial to humans as they provide natural healing ingredients.

The best part of all is their beauty is in the eye of the beholder…just ask my granddaughter ....What are those flowers in the garden ?..

She will tell you…" WILDFLOWERS "... and ... their parents were Daisy and BB”…..

Spyguy...thank you again for taking the time to read my writes..sorry you couldn't find them...don't know what is going on with the site....I will try to resolve the issue.There are some readers that don't get my writes and think they are " dark and foreboding "...however even though if you read my profile, it explains that I see life through
" cracked rose colored glasses " implying an off the wall style...maybe I should make the statement
" PROCEED WITH CAUTION"....eh what ?
