Victoria’s Daffodils

Victoria’s favorite flowers were daffodils. When spring came they grew in her garden. She thought they looked like bright yellow trumpets. Pink butterflies came to sip nectar  and gather pollen. Bumblebees buzzed from flower to flower. Victoria loved the sweet smell of the daffodils. When the wind blew, they nodded their flowery heads up and down. The new leaves on the trees shimmered and made a whispering sound. Victoria watered the flowers every day to help them grow tall. Sunshine kissed their soft petals.

Sometimes she picked up the rich brown earth. Worms wriggled about in her hands. Ants crawled up her legs as she sat in the dirt. Victoria giggled when a ladybug landed on her nose. Drops of rain fell from gray clouds and dripped from the daffodil’s leaves.

Victoria put on her raincoat and galoshes. Her raincoat was the same color as the daffodils. She’d jump in the puddles and splash water on her legs. When the rain stopped, a rainbow spread across the sky. Instead of gray clouds, puffy white ones floated slowly by. Victoria liked to smell the pink roses, The violets and the iris, but none of them smelled or looked as pretty as her favorite flowers, the daffodils.
