The Flower That Loves Me

They live between the lanes on a doublecarriage highway. Cars whizz past on both sides. An odd couple they are; a flower that talks and a plant that gets fed up. The plant rips up its roots and sets off to see the big wide world. A poetic and witty story about seeing the world – and finding your way home again.
