DANA’S FLOWER GARDEN
Dana loves flowers. Her favorites are daisies, tulips, and daffodils. Tulips and daffodils come up every spring, and daisies come up later in the summer. These plants are perennials; they come up year after year.
Dana loves the spring because she can go to the flower market to buy her annuals. The annuals only last one season, but they add a lot of color to the garden. Dana got up Saturday morning very early. She wanted to get to the market early so she would have time to plant everything when she got home. Off she went to Barton’s Flower Market. She ran into some friends. “Hi, Dana,” they called out to her.
“Hi,” said Dana with a big smile. “Let’s look around together!” Dana and her friends saw pansies, geraniums, periwinkles, and petunias.
“Oh, so many pretty flowers!" exclaimed Dana. “I love them all.”
Dana decided to buy red and yellow pansies, blue periwinkles, and purple petunias. That will add a lot of color to my garden, thought Dana. She said good-bye to her friends and went home.
Dana happily began planting her new flowers around the tulips and daffodils. Dana was so happy. She loved her flower garden, and she knew she would enjoy it all summer long. Dana had a perfect day.
