“The Easter Bonnet”
The morning sunlight streamed through the windows of the farm house’s cozy kitchen, warming the simple table set for two. The Spring Cotillion was only two weeks away, and the young weed-gal was desperate to find the perfect hat to wear. She was nervous about asking her mother for permission to spend the afternoon shopping, so she had to strike quickly, while her mother was in a good mood. She’d been extra polite while helping with chores this morning, and her mother had been pleased. Perhaps this was the right moment to ask!
“Mother”, she began, “I’ve been thinking about the Spring Cotillion coming soon and how I really need to buy a new hat. Do you think -”
Her mother looked up, her face flushed with excitement. “My dear, I have a surprise for you! She retrieved a bulky flour sack from the pantry and placed it on the table.”I’ve been saving this for you! I thought you might like to wear my Spring Cotillion hat from when I was your age! Try it on!”
Unable to mask her emotions, the young weed felt her leaves droop, but did as she was told. Her mother gasped with excitement. She arranged the violet hat just so and pronounced it a perfect fit!
There would be no shopping for this little weed-gal. Her hat did look fetching….At least her mother thought so.
Please come back tomorrow for a new “Weed Image of the Day” and let me know which ones you like.
We and our weeds are so much more than what we first appear to be.
