LOL - I'm sitting here chuckling all by myself! I loved the names of your flowers and links to their personalities and wise cracks. Hilerious! Thanks for the laugh!

What a delightful and enjoyable read! When the picnic began, I yawned, thinking to myself "ho hum"...but then the fun began - in the garden!! Great job, fun read and creatively entertaining!
Very clever and sweet story. Nice work!
Very creative! I loved this!

Well, what can I say, I've read this twice now and I am still chuckling. Not overdone, not silly, just right. A refreshing and wonderful read. Excellent!

A fun filled story that continued to hold my attention. Loved the repartee between the plants and the characters you gave them according to their names. Very creative. yeggy

Brilliant Joanne! I keep picturing the potatoes rolling their eyes. Great read - I can see how you moved up so fast!

Very, very cute! I especially love the advice the iris gave. You had me chuckling out loud.
I really enjoyed how you switched between the girls, the garden and then back to the girls. You had some funny lines with the garden characters, but I have one thing to be nit picky about. You said the corn covered its ears with its hands, but corn doesn't have hands. Maybe just 'covered his ears' would be more in character? Either way, great story and good writing. :) Oh, and I loved the iris too. :)

This story is absolutely charming! I see the word "delight" has been used to described this piece because it so perfectly does. So many cute lines throughout. "...try getting shucked!" "...uphill, both ways, in scorching heat!" Although I loved the picture of dimples and pigtails perhaps saying something like "dimpled with pigtails" instead of "full of". You really did a great job. I look forward to more of your humorous writing.

Joanne,
Bravo! Adorable story alive with fantasy veggie characters. Loved this line, "How do you think Susan got her black eye?" Funny. I've had black-eyed Susans in my garden before and I didn't even kill them. Wonderful!

What a fun, delightful read. Your creativity is amazing!
This was certainly a different approach. It went well with the scripture given. No wonder it was a winner.
