a different kind of name game


Frank has expressed a bit of jealousy that his twin Rose has her own flower of the same name. As we go out in the evenings to water a few of the potted plants, and more tender flowers it's always her job to water the miniature rose bush. Little Frank was always given a watering can and assigned the marigolds, but he always threw a little fit about it. I couldn't figure out what was upsetting him until he approached me to state rather matter-of-factly the other night, that he was going out to water the "Franks" on the front porch.

Alrighty then.

A marigold by any other name just wouldn't be the same.
