The Fountain of Flowers
What happened to spring?
There were no blossoms in gardens or on trees. There was no color. Brides
carried flowerless stems and teachers only got sticks for their vases.
Alexandra was sent out to find where the flowers had gone. She eventually
finds a gray shack in the forest. She knocks on the door and that's when she
meets the Groodid who has all the seeds, flowers, buds, and even the weeds

problem when he moves into her house.
