Holly’s Bluebonnets

Bluebonnets sprung from the ground. Holly sat down in the middle of them. She wasn’t afraid of the bees that buzzed from flower to flower. Butterflies fluttered around Holly’s head. Other flowers grew among the bluebonnets. Holly saw bright red Indian Paintbrush, fluffy balls of pink clover, white daisies with bright yellow centers, and lemony buttercups.

When the wind blew, the flowers danced, Holly’s golden hair blew in her face, and she could smell the fragrance of the flowers when she took a deep breath. Holly lay on her back and looked at the blue sky. Puffy white clouds floated across. She thought one of them looked like a lamb. Another looked like a penguin.

The sun was shining high in the sky. It was bright and felt warm on her face. Holly could hear a cricket chirping. It was hiding under a rock. She listened to the bluebirds singing a sweet melody as they made their nests. Her big brother and sister ran through the bluebonnets and sat down next to Holly. She giggled when her brother picked a daisy and put it in his hair. Holly picked two daisies and gave one to her sister. They both put them in their hair. All of them giggled. Holly’s mom said it was time to go home. Holly picked a buttercup and gave it to her mom and she gave Holly back a big hug.
