Oh, Alice! Ch 8: You Can Learn A Lot From the FLOWERS

"Never mind!"
Alice said in a soothing tone,
and stooping down to the daisies,
who were just beginning again,
she whispered,

"If you don't hold your tongues, I'll pick you!"

There was silence in a moment,
and several of the pink daisies turned white.
"That's right!" said the Tiger-lily.
"The daisies are worst of all.
When one speaks, they all begin together,
and it's enough to make one wither to hear the way they go on!"

"How is it you can all talk so nicely?" Alice said,
hoping to get it into a better temper by a compliment.
"I've been in many gardens before,
but none of the flowers could talk." 

What a sweet, sunny sign of Spring it is
when all of our floral friends come out to play!

Here at the Oh, Alice! Blog,
we definitely agree with Alice... 
You can learn a lot of things from the flowers!

This week's challenge?
USE FLOWERS on your card or project!

I'm also entering my card to the following challenges:
- Raise the Bar Challenge #13 - Let's Spring For It!
- The ABC Challenge - R is for Red

since the moment I received it - forever!
Sometimes I just cannot part with some things ;)
