Snapdragon Symphony Excerpt:

It was a wondrous and beautiful day in the garden. The lush greenery was alive with an abundance of flowers and plants, all of which were in full bloom. Every color of the rainbow could be seen in the petals and leaves, from the deep reds of the roses to the soft yellows of the daffodils. The fragrances of the garden were equally as stunning, filling the air with a sweet, floral aroma that was almost intoxicating. Summer Snapdragon couldn’t help but be entranced by the vibrant hues that surrounded her. She felt grateful to be a part of such a breathtaking display of nature’s beauty.

Summer was enjoying the scenery and the warm sunshine when she suddenly heard the sweet sound of birds singing. She listened intently, captivated by the beautiful melody. As she looked around, she saw other animals in the garden singing along with the birds. The chipmunks chirped, the squirrels squeaked, and the bees buzzed. In the distance, a woodpecker added a percussive thunk-thunk-thunk to the music of the garden. Summer smiled as she realized how much she wanted to join in and sing as well.
