Love it! The added bonus of rhyming lines was a superb touch. Good job!
How cute! This was a very entertaining read. The rhyming really added to this piece and culminating with "Sue, put a geranium in it" was especially funny. Great job!
Very amusing! Loved the rhyming banter between your character and her friend. A black thumb? Now that's what I call a thorn in the flesh! Loved the last line. yeggy
A witty write, and a delightful read. Kudos.
Too cute! Loved the "Mary Mary quite contrary..." rhymes. AND the slammed receiver: "“Sue, put a geranium in it,” I yelled and slammed down the receiver." I mean how great that you're letting your character be so emotionally authentic. ;-D

I liked the repeated “How does your garden grow” refrain and the very poetic replies. I think that I must also have a black thumb!
What a fun story! I just loved your "Mary Mary quite contrary" refrain too, and the wonderful message. So clever - congrats!!!
Congratulations, Sue. A great story with humor and a message! I enjoyed this a lot.
