The Mystery Plant Revealed

Ages ago, in my last blog story, I posted a picture of this mystery plant:

Dianthus flowers

I have finally learned the true identity of this plant and want to share it with everyone. It is called a Dianthus.

I have decided to no longer post free weekly stories on my website BiancaMarch.com. Instead, I am planning on releasing short books for children as Kindle books on Amazon.com. This has been taking me a while because it requires me to learn digital painting, using a Wacom tablet and digital pen. I want to start drawing the Elementrees characters. This task is somewhat intimidating to me, so I have been kind of procrastinating it.

Also, I have been working on other projects and social events that have further delayed this goal of mine. When my new Kindle books come out, you will be the first to know.

Best wishes,

Bianca March

Look What’s Budding

Mystery flower bud

Pete Moss walked around his backyard and investigated all the different kinds of budding plants. He snapped pictures of some budding trees, herbs, a fern, and flowers he could name for sure.

He found a one-inch tall peony flower bud. It was purplish-pink.

He found snowdrop flower linear leaves. He did not know which ones would grow to have purple or white flowers. He found irises near the snowdrops. They may grow to be blue, purple, or red. There was a fern bud nearby.

In one garden bed, he found wild garlic leaves, budding scallions, and a budding slender donut peach tree.

He visited the dogwood tree he hugged before. It now had budding white flowers. Behind this tree were budding daffodils in the corner of a bed of a row of Ace of Hearts miniature trees. The dogwood tree had an apricot tree for a neighbor on one side.

Parsley was in a corner where a toad usually visits in the late spring.

In his front yard were budding tulips—their flower color was unknown as of yet. Also, here he had two corners of hyacinths—pink, purple, and white, but their colors were secret at the moment.

There was a mystery flower budding in a planter under his bedroom window. Can you guess what these flowers are? There is a picture above. If he figures it out later, he’ll report back to you. He’ll have to find the same variety at the Home Depot—when they bring the flowers around Mother’s Day, May 8—to know for sure.

There are many more things budding in Pete Moss’s garden, but these are the buds he could name for sure now, so early in the Spring.

The Man in the Moon

It was the evening of Sunday, March 27. Tommy Tomorrow was holding on to the railing of Grandpa Joe’s backyard deck and looking up at the sky.

Grandpa Joe pointed to the waning gibbous moon and asked, “Do you see the man in the moon?”
