Two Shoes Tuesday #4-- "Secret" / MidWeek Blues
Once there was a little plant with small flowers. This plant was of medium size, about two feet high, and well placed in a location receiving the morning sun. It was watered every several days.
But the little plant was not happy. It did not mind having small flowers even considering how the lowly violets were loved by all. Nor did it mind having a thin stem. Seems though that the finest daisies had thin stems and much shorter leaves.
The little plant felt unappreciated and of a low class. Even though it had a prime location at the edge of a family yard no one really stopped to admire it. The owner gave it a nice old pot to be placed in and kept the weeds around it cut. But still something was not right in its social life.
Only the owner and the little plant knew the real problem. The little plant's secret was hard.
"It isn't easy being a weed."
Then one day the owner of the garden stopped and took several pictures of the little plant. One other day he had stopped and taken pictures of the large long eared plant beside him. Now this story with its own picturue.
In a few days the little plant discovered the owner had posted its picture on his blog.
Suddenly now it mattered not that it was a weed. The little plant had been recognized. It had become published.

The writing prompt for Tuesday, Sept. 25th will be "secret"!"
