The Shy Bean Sprout's

And I told them thier blossoms would be different, but just as beautiful.

Hi everyone,

Today I thought would be a good day to take a little journey through my garden.

First I walked down to the berry patch to see my favorite ----strawberrys!

I found some nice red juicy berrys , so I stuffed some in my mouth and picked a little basket full to take back to my moms. They were sooo good.

Then I stopped and smelled the big orange carrot tops. Next, I peeked into the tomatoe plants to see what I could see- and there were blossoms- as many as the stars in the sky.

I made my way down to the bean patch and was surprised at how all the little bean plants were starting to climb up their ladders.

All except,,, two little bean sprouts that seemed to be peeking out of the soil, but not starting to climb their ladders. I was worried, so I decided to sit for awhile. I pulled a big carrot out of the ground and plopped my little self down on it.

I sat quietly for awhile, thinking, and then I said. "Little bean sprout , can you tell me why your not coming out of the soil like the other little beans?" "Is something wrong"?

One little bean sprout, then told me, that they had gotten a late start. They were a different kind of bean than all the others, and they felt a little shy. They were going to have speckles on them, and the others did not. They did not know what to do. They felt out of place, and maybe could not catch up.

After thinking a bit, I told the bean sprouts that they would have a different kind of blossom when they grew up, but that they would be beautiful too. "Don't give up little bean sprouts".

Just wiggle your toes and stretch.

Sometimes, we all feel like we are behind and we ask ourselves----should we stop, or should we go? I know I have felt that way. Have you?

As I sat on the carrot, talking to the shy bean sprouts, rain started falling from the sky.

I was getting soaked, and cold.

When I started to leave the bean patch, I turned and looked behind me. The bean sprouts were stretching their faces up into the sky- soaking in the sweet rain.

I have a good feeling that they will be growing tall- real soon, and blooming proudly.

I grabbed my strawberry basket in my mouth, and ran to the house, fast as I could go.

Mama was at the door, to wipe my muddy feet and to dry me off with some nice warm towels, and wash my berry stained mouth.

I will take a nice little nap, since my tummy is very full of strawberrys.

Tomorrow, I will go back and see how much they have grown.

Nitey nite everyone

Good morning Tweedles,

Kong loves strawberries too. We are growing our's in baskets that hang so that they are not within reach of his mouth. That was nice encouragement you gave those beans. There's nothing wrong with being different.

Mom has raspberry, boysenberry and blackberry plants in the backyard. They are coming in really thick. Mom says we are going to have a ton of berries, if I don't eat them all first.
Having fresh strawberries must be the best. We are glad you told the bean sprouts that it is okay to be different and walk to a different drumbeat. More people need to remember that.

You can make those sprouts grow Tweedles! Your mom has the best garden! I'd love to eat some of the berries!

Every Photo Tells A Story said...

What a beautiful story, sweet Tweedles. Like those shy bean sprouts, we all have our fears. But, some of us have the courage to keep growing and to keep blooming into our true selves. And, that's a wonderful thing! You are so wise to notice.

And, aren't you kind to share the strawberries with your momma's? I think I would have eaten them all by myself:)

Salinger The Pug said...

Oooh thanks for sharing your garden with us Tweedles! Those strawberries look YUMMY!!!!

We've been watching our bean sprouts too! We'll think of you now every day when we check on them!


Kelly said...

Hi Tweedles! That picture of you with your strawberries might just be the cutest one ever!

You are so nice to encourage those bean sprouts. Sometimes, we just need someone to tell us they believe in us!

That must be so much fun to have your own garden. I would like to have a garden but some of my other dogs would tear it up, they dig up everything in the yard or pee on it! Tweedles you're loads of fun and I love reading about your adventures.
