It's Day 12 of the Blogging from A to Z April 2015 Challenge
Now listen to me. I’ve been very patient, but I really think it’s about time you stirred yourselves. I know its cold, but if I can put up with it, so can you.
We all like a lie in from time to time but this is ridiculous. This time last year you and your mates were up and alert despite the late spring. This year you are still tucked up in your beds.
If the daffodils can raise themselves so can you. I know they were a bit slow at surfacing this year, but now they are all on parade and beginning to wonder where you have got to.
Being a tulip doesn't give you any privileges you know. I just looked in on the hyacinths and although they were understandably reluctant to raise their heads above the soil they have at least made an effort.
Are you listening to me? This is your final warning. If you don’t get up and open your petals right now you will find yourself joining the weeds and clippings on the compost heap.
I’m counting. One.....two.......three........four...........
Back to the grim realities of life tomorrow with a very short vignette called The mêlée
I also have a blog on which I write poems and stories for children. It's called Once upon a Time and it's right HERE!
