There was a little girl (Tina – Lil P’s fav doll ) who loved to be indoors all the time. She loved to play with her dolls and watch TV all the time . Her mom always told her to go out and play but she liked it better indoors. So one day mumma said,Tina, come; lets go for a picnic. Tina was very excited. Mumma took her to a beautiful garden.
There were lots of colorful flowers there. Mummma who made these lovely flowers? she asked.
So mumma told her a story. One day , long long time ago .. There were no colorful things on earth. It was all dull and grey. All the children on the earth were very sad.
They looked up and saw that the Sun had lots of things to play with –
There was a beautiful rainbow, there were soft cottony clouds, there was the blue blue sky. Ohhh We wish we had something that colorful too, they sighed. Now the Sun loved children very much and he did not want them to be sad. So he said.. I’ll make pretty things for you too. but you need to promise to take good care of them.
He made poinsettia, roses and hibiscus
He made the lovely birds of paradise , marigold and lilies
He picked up yellow and made sunflowers
Some pink lotus & gerbera
With the blue, he made some hydrangea
with indigo he made some ipomea
When the beautiful flowers filled the earth, The butterflies came and the birds came too.
and all the children were happy again 🙂
Lil P loves to gaze at her magic garden [ thats what she calls this ] and hear this story every night.
She can also recognize these flowers by their names. My mom is a avid gardener and has many flowering plants and Lil P is enjoying her practical botanical sessions..
