FLOWER CHILD - Friday Flash 55

Petunia hated her stupid name. Her mother, who loved gardening, named her and her sisters after flowers: Iris, Daisy, Violet, Rose, and Petunia.

Kids at school had taunted them by calling them the Flower Girls.

If she had a brother, he would have been tormented ruthlessly. Surely her crazy mother would have named him Pansy.

To make word a link:

Mine's Here

Change "Mine's" and "Here" to whatever you want it to say.

Hope this helps!!
