This is a narrative depicting the journey of small seeds preparing to take root and begin their life cycle. The main character, Miss Maple, prepares her “orphaned seeds” for their spring planting. The author details through figurative language the obstacles the seeds may face as they travel before taking root. The last piece of dialogue leaves the reader with a life lesson; “even the grandest of trees once had to grow up from the smallest of seeds.”
