SPRING FLING CONTEST: READY, SET, GROW!

Hi everyone! Spring is a wonderful time of year that STEMS with renewal, growth, and possibilities. As writers, we weather the storm of revisions, submissions, and passes. But, by digging down deep and connecting to our roots, we’re made stronger. I hope this Spring brings everyone budding success!

The warmer weather also brings us the uplifting SpringFling writing contest! My entry focuses on Mother Nature, and I hope you like it!

READY, SET, GROW!

Good morning and welcome to The Annual Spring Race.

I’m your host, Mother Nature.

Like bears waking from hibernation, our contestants are grumbling.

And rumbling.

And shifting in their beds.

It’s time.

Flowers, start your engines!

Ready…

Set…

GROW!

Who will make the first move?

It looks like…

Crocus!

She may be small, but she is mighty!

Can this tiny little flower pull it off?

Not if Hyacinth has anything to say about it.

Making his move, they’re stem and stem!

But wait!

Tulip breaks her bulb next.

Followed by Daffodil.

What a race!

They’re nearing the top.

Climbing.

Reaching.

Stretching.

And it looks like it’s…

CROCUS!

This dainty flower proves she strong and beautiful.

Followed by Hyacinth, Tulip, then Daffodil.

The real winners though, are their admirers.

Thanks again for tuning in.

And make sure to stop and smell the flowers!

  1. Lovely! If you see a crazy man cheering on flowers, feeding them, watering them, that would be me. Just smile and nod . . . and go about your day. 🙂

    1. I love it!!! Glad you’re cheering them on and taking care of them. We all benefit from the beauty ☺️

  2. This is so much fun! I had an energetic announcer’s voice in my head the whole time I was reading it. Love this clever premise! Great ending line, too.
