898. Grandma Margaret's begonia
© Bruce Goodman 26 March 2016
Grandma Margaret was given a beautiful red begonia in a terracotta pot the shape of an old boot. It was beautiful!
And then the begonia died! Well, these things can’t last forever. Grandma Margaret put the terracotta pot with the dead plant in a corner of her carport.
A grandson visited.
“Grandma, what’s with the clay pot the shape of a boot?”
“I had a beautiful red begonia growing in it, but it died. These things can’t last forever.”
Grandma Margaret’s grandson watered the soil in the terracotta clay pot. The begonia sprouted. It flowered a beautiful red.
“It just needed a bit of water, Grandma.”
