Dear Miss Petunia,
I must beg of your forgiveness. For years I have not liked you. There. I said it. I have thought you a boring flower that everyone had in their yard and was the same lame colors. I wanted more. I wanted exotic! I wanted spectacular!
Having many little natives and much responsibility I have come to appreciate your quiet, simple, easy, forgiving ways. If I forget to water you, you don't shrivel up and die at the first sign of distress. You are hardy and make a spectacular come back.. If one of The Natives steps on you, you bounce right back. When Levi rides his bike over the top of you, you carry on and act as if nothing has happened. When I've not been nice to you, you've been nice to me.
I have noticed over the last few years that you have been trying out some new colors and fashions. I'm excited that you are experimenting and want to encourage you to keep experimenting. I will support you and plant you all over my yard. That's if you'll forgive me........ please? Please forgive me for being snooty in my pick of flowers.
