Lovely - you did a wonderful job of characterization with the dialog. LOVED learning about this flower.
I enjoyed this very much. I enjoyed the humor of germinate not germs. Interesting to see the seed that was planted and what happened years later. Thanks for writing and sharing.
I enjoyed your unique approach to the topic. Very sweet story.
So engaging, thanks for the story.

This was fun to read -- I loved learning about this special flower. And the twist ending was great.

I had a bit of a problem deciding how old Jack was at the beginning. Based on the dialogue, I kept picturing boys of various ages.

My favorite line in the whole story is: "Jack winked back with both eyes." That's really sweet. Nice job with the topic.

What a wonderful, creative, unique idea! I had to look up a picture of a jack-in-the-pulpit, and I've learned something very interesting today!
In this very creative story, I loved the spiritual implications you taught through the flower, and I loved your little boy character--winking with both eyes. I remember my children doing that!

This is darling and creative! You really thought "outside the box" here. JK. :) Great job!
I agree with what everyone has said so far. This is just so endearing.

Yes, my favorite word picture is little Jack winking back with both eyes! I can just picture that so clearly. This is a darling story, and it made me smile the whole way through. I love the creativity to the topic, and the many wonderful descriptions. Love the ending, too. It's one of my favorites so far!
