    Debbie, I agree with Cyndi - I could see this illustrated in watercolour. So perfect for a children's book! I just love the last summary couplet!

    Hey, Sis, did love this so... and I can so easiy see this illustrated. When I close my eyes I see it as watercolour and ink. Life has gone totally off the deep end this week. Hubby is working at his casual job from 6:30 am til 8:30 pm (sometimes 9!) I am getting 40 mins (time to shower and do a few dishes, make his lunch and do a quick tidy. Next week? More of the same... and yet I can already miss her (next year kindergarten) I am CRACKERS! Maybe moms have the stages? LOL. Love ya xox

    That came across wrong. Hubby is working an additional 3 hours so leaves at 11 am instead of 2 pm... Both he and I are "fashed" now there's a word!

    Debs, this is so awesome. Because not only did you do flowers, you made them INTERESTING and gave them names by alphabetical order as well. If I were judge, it would be at the top of my list. A fave!!

    Hello, gorgeous! Im here to read You; stop pouting! : ) This poem is above and beyond beauty! Remember to include a mini-bio. Check the apostrophe-s in the W line, and in the last couplet ... "a" is "are"?? Cyndi and Veritas will love this ABC! Best of luck in her contest. Ruben.

    Oh yes..Flower Fairies, a delightful certainly could have been in the back of my mind for I do have 2 of the books. I wanted to do strong girls in fiction but couldn't find 26 of them grrr & then I thought of flower and was able to find 26 SO I thought I'd build my own strong girls & Barker does poems on the plants, I'd like to have drawings dressing the glas to somewhat show what the plant looks like!

    Wow !! You did it and did it well...too much of a challenge for me.

    Seems quite Dr. Suess-ish to me. A little non-sense is fun to read in poetry now and then. Reminds us to not be so solemn and dare to be silly. Are you an elementary teacher perhaps? After reading this I could definitely see you as one... thanks for the enjoyable read.
