Acorn and Button recently visited a beautiful garden.
As they walked, Button pointed to a large, leafy plant. “That’s a hosta,” he said. “And over there is a coleus.”
“You know a lot about plants,” said Acorn.
“Indeed,” replied Button. “I’m an expert on horticulture.”
“And this beautiful purple plant is known as Persian Shield,” continued Button.
Acorn and Button stopped at a pretty plant with small, blue flowers.
“What is this called?” asked Acorn.
Button peered at the flowers. “That’s a ground cover knows as Shrubby Gromwell.”
Acorn bent down to feel the leaves of a succulent plant. “This one is bright green,” he said.
Button nodded. “That’s another ground cover called Creeping Jenny. It spreads along the ground.”
As Acorn and Button looked at the different plants, they heard a loud grunt and snort.
”Is that your belly growling, Button?” Acorn asked.
”My belly does not growl,” said Button sternly. ”But it is noon and time for lunch.”
With that the two friends headed home for a nice meal of blueberry waffles.
