A limerick a week #39

Blooming marvellous!

When your better half decides to grow a couple of very tall sunflowers and wonders why they are still miniscule several weeks later …

Our sunflowers will soon blossom forth
But I don’t think they’re going to morph
From exceedingly small
To seven feet tall
‘Cos the label that’s on them says ‘Dwarf’!

I told her that I’d never make fun of her sunflowers … I wouldn’t stoop so low 😎
