If you would like to plant bulbs I have some suggestions.

You could plant daffodils, runuaualars, hypuatras,

thorns in them.

Chapter 10

One day I will fill

a huge vase of roses….

If I had a big vase of flowers I would have

to put water in vase and I would put some
daisies, roses and geraniums in the vase.
I know it will look pretty in the vase. The
flowers would be nice ones and they would
have all the colours.

I will grow flowers in my garden; I will pick

them and put them in a pretty coloured vase
