A/N: The Month of April was the Month of Rainbows at allbingo. I made a 2x2 bingo card, to help motivate myself to complete some prompts to help support my writing. I completed my bingo card before my vacation, but wanted a beta to look at them before posting. This is original works: plot, world building, and character development are propriety of the author.
Dad said I could find a spot in the garden for the strawberry bush. I thought would look great by the strawberry foxglove seed plant standing tall in the back of the lot. The foxglove was tall with dangling hoods of a pale pink color. I read in Dad’s planting book that most strawberry bush plants have white flowers blossoming into a bulb for the fresh fruit to come in.
A few days later, I went to check on the strawberry bush to see how it was growing when I noticed a bright, wild strawberry colored flower bloom along with a batch of white flowers. Seeing the rare pink colored petals, I knew without a doubt, this strawberry would be large and extra tart.
