Plant One Tree, Not 1,000

Dear Shayna B.,

My mom really likes to garden, and I am so so so sick of it. Practically everything on our agenda for summer is about flowers. Our backyard is literally a forest of daisies, roses, sunflowers, tulips, fruit trees and other plants. I really do love plants, but it’s too much!


Sincerely,

Fed Up Faigy

Dear Fed Up Faigy,

I don’t really think it should bother you that much that you have plants in your backyard. It’s one thing if you feel like your mother doesn’t spend time with you, in which case you should totally tell her that, but to have flowers, well, it really doesn’t seem so bad. I’m sure it is a lot, but that’s just more beauty to enjoy.

Also, do you really use your backyard that much anyway? I mean, the last time you actually played in your yard was what, January? I’m sure you’d much rather go out for a walk than go to your crowded backyard anyway. However, if you can squeeze the desert into your summer plans, I’m sure you’d be much better off, because I haven’t heard of any flowers there.


Shayna is a rising seventh grader and knows what kids in elementary school and middle school are going through. She can be reached at [email protected]. She’s looking forward to hearing from you!
