I spent some quality time in my garden this weekend, soaking up the sun and appreciating my flowers. That’s when I noticed it.
“I haven’t been watering it,” Alf said.
“Why not?” I asked.
“It didn’t appeal to me.”
“But we paid money for it.”
“You know? You’re the one who makes sure we use the things we buy.”
“It doesn’t make sense. I neglected it. It wasn’t speaking to me.”
Since then, I have been watering the plant and sure enough green leaves are popping up all over it.
“That’s looking pretty good,” Alf said.
“What some water will do,” I said.
I began to look for more neglected plants in the garden. I saw another one. A low creepy crawler that was barely breathing. I began watering it too. It has sprouted purple flowers.
“I’m going to call you PP,” Alf said.
