Aunt Zinnia and Lucy spend their days in a magical garden filled with dragonflies, butterflies, and all manner of lush, beautiful flowers. But how did these flowers ever come to be? Curious Lucy wants to know, so she plants seeds in little pots and waits for them to grow. Of course, in her quest to learn the flowers' secret, Lucy also must learn patience.

Depicting the enchantment of nature through full-color illustrations, award-winning author Mireille Levert tells a tale sure to motivate young children to try Lucy's experiment for themselves - and to learn from their own experience that plants need time to grow.
