Once  upon a time,
in a far, far distant time,
a young girl 
got to marry
a Prince.

Now,  this wasn't just any Prince.
This was a flower-growing

His Mother, the Queen,
had a very green thumb
and when the Prince was
born, his thumb was green too!

The  new Princess and Prince were
very, very happy when their children
were also born with
 green thumbs
because the tradition
could continue.

Now  the Queen Mother was
generous with her gift
of the green thumb
and whatever she shared
with others grew
and knew no bounds

And  so, even when the
Queen was in eternal rest,
her green thumb continued
to bless those with whom
she shared and they too
were able to share
the gift so long ago given.

And it is with great joy
that the gift keeps giving.
each year on the Princess birthday--
she knows the Prince will give
her flowers and she'll see
the beauty of the Queen Mother
once again.

And so, this story never ends...

  1. Your garden is beautiful Robin! It is such a blessing to share from the garden, so many thoughts of those we love when we stroll along to enjoy each space. I have so many plants that my uncle and sister have shared with me, they are my favorites! Thanks so much for sharing at AMAZE ME MONDAY...
