Nature Ruining Flowers

Well, it looks like I’ll have to buy some new flowers. It’s a shame because I really did love those roses. About an hour ago my house just randomly started shaking, which was very scary, and then all my pot plants fell from the windowsill. In the aftermath, all I could do was weep at the sight of the damage. Others may have been concerned for their homes or their families, but I’d just lost my poor, beautiful roses to the destructive forces of nature! My life will never be the same without them.

Maybe I’m being a bit dramatic, although that is genuinely how I felt at the time. Now I’ve settled down a bit and realised that I could simply buy seeds online and enjoy the growing process again. It’s really nice watching something you’ve planted grow. I take great pride in cultivating flowers, so maybe this is a blessing in disguise. Thank you random shaking, for destroying my flowers! 

No, actually, I’ve changed my mind. This kind of sucks. Like, sure, I’ll enjoy nurturing new flowers and all, but it’s going to be so much effort. Do you have any idea how hard David Austin roses are to grow properly? So you know what, I’m kind of ticked off that mother nature decided to ruin my beautiful flowers. Why would you do this to me, world?

Admittedly, it was probably a bad idea to put my flowers in pots on the windowsill. A recipe for disaster, even. But what’s done is done. I suppose I only have myself to blame for this unfortunate situation. Next time, maybe I should do gardening outside like a normal person. Maybe this was the world’s way of getting back at me for taking its natural flowers indoors, where they would suffer from the stale air and lack of unfiltered sunlight. Alright, world, you win, I’ll plant my next batch of roses outside. Are you happy now?
