Red, White and Canadian

Jayden was outside in her garden. It was a beautiful day and she noticed the flowers in her garden were growing beautifully. 

“This is going to be a beautiful garden this year,” said Jayden, bent over picking the one or two weeds she saw. 

While picking out the last weed, Jayden saw the most beautiful flower she had ever seen. It had vibrant red and white colours. 

“What are you doing in my garden?” asked Jayden. “I know I didn’t plant you.” 

“What day is today?” asked the flower. 

“Today is July 1st,” said Jayden. “Oh wait! It is Canada Day.” 

“I am a Canada Day flower,” said the flower. “I will appear here each Canada Day.” 

Jayden got her camera out and took picture after picture of the flower. She spent the whole day in the garden with the Canada Day flower enjoying it’ s beauty. 

“Oh look!” cried Jayden happily, at the end of the day. “Fireworks!” 

Jayden looked over at the Canada Day flower and was sad to see that it was gone. 

“I will have to wait for next Canada Day,” said Jayden, happy that she did at least have photographs and memories of it. 


 

Moral of this Story:

  • It is nice when we find something special in our garden.
  • Example: Jayden found a Canada Day flower in her garden.
