The Fonnie Flower.

The Fonnie Flower.

This flower is called a ‘Fonnie Flower’ because:

It’s very hard to find.

Once you see it, you want to look at it all the time.

It’s modest, yet breathtakingly beautiful.

It doesn’t compete with other flowers.

It thrives in dark, barren conditions.

It turns an ordinary patch of clover into a tiny paradise.

It opens itself to the world, regardless of risk.

It’s the pinkest thing ever.

The closer you look at it, the more you see.

It sums up all of nature’s genius and goodness.

It rolls up tightly in cold weather.

It has a golden heart that’s full of light and empty of evil.

The beautiful Fonnie Flower!
