This is a short story about a girl named Rose who loved flowers.

Rose loved no place in the world more than her garden, with its colourful flowers and sweet smell in the air. Mama said that she loved gardens so much because she was as beautiful as a flower too!

In the garden, Rose had many flowering plants like daisies, sunflowers and tulips. Every morning she watered them with her mother and every night, she sang them all a lullaby to make them sleep.

Rose had written her own lullaby to sing.

“The flowers in the garden are beautiful

I love my flowers because I’m a flower too

With the sun they are happy, with love I take care of them

If you see my garden, you will love them as I do”

Rose was a very intelligent girl and took care of the flowers in her garden very well, but Mama thought that something was missing in her little cute little garden.

She thought about it a lot, as the days passed and when the birthday of her little daughter arrived, an idea suddenly appeared in her head.

“Roses for Rose, of course!” Mama thought to herself.

Roses are pretty flowers, remind her of princesses, are of all shapes and colors, they always smell very good and they are always very neat.

“Rose, what’s your favorite color?” Mom asked.

“Pink,” Rose answered without thinking

And so Mom knew what to do. Taking great care not to be discovered, she wore dark glasses and a cap so no one would recognise her, then she went to the store where they sold plants and very carefully asked in a serious voice.

“Do you have pink rose bushes?”

“Oh, you’re Rose’s mother,” the salesman said with a smile, “I almost did not recognize you with those dark glasses on. Yes, we have pink roses, let’s go and pick the most beautiful one”.

Mama remembered that she always went to the same store to buy products for the plants in her garden. Mama also realised that her costume was not very good.

Poor mom!

As she was looking at the pink roses in the store, she found a nice rosebush that made her yelp with excitement. It had green leaves so bright that they looked artificial and the roses were so big and smelling that she knew she had to have it.

She paid for the rosebush and put it in the back of the car, while being very careful to not get hurt. When she got home, took it to the garden and then it was time to decide where to place it.

“In the center of the garden, of course!”

She made a hole in the ground and then planted the rose bush, it looked so cute that she took a picture of the garden with her phone. Later that day, Mama picked up her little girl from school and took her home and when they arrived Mom said

“Wait, do not get off the car” Rose looked at her curiously and sat quietly in the car.

Mama looked for her, opened the door and then with her hands mom covered her eyes.

“Today is your 4th birthday” Mom explained as she guided Rose through the garden “you’re already a big girl and I think you can have more responsibilities.”

When they were in front of the Rose bush, Mom let rose look.

“It is beautiful!” said Rose, looking at the plant excitedly “and how well they smell, thanks mom, it’s the best present in the world!”

“You like it then?” Mama was about to cry with joy.

“Of course they are the most beautiful flowers in the world, although they are all pretty … I will say they are my favorites!”

And so Rose received the best birthday present in the world, a Rose bush of her favorite color that filled the air with a delicious sweet smell and that also had big roses, as big as her Mama’s heart was.
