The next day Freckles sailed his lily pad out to see if he could find the right place

for him. He waved goodbye to his family and started off on his adventure.

He came across a deer and a wood duck. They all had lunch together and told

Freckles about the story of the Great Purple Flower Hanging Basket. But you must pass

through the Field of Giant Yellow Sunflowers then the Tangled Vines of Red

Strawberries to get to the Great Purple Flower Hanging Basket told the deer and wood

duck. He continued off on his journey and waved goodbye.

Freckles hopped and hopped until he seen the tallest yellow flower he’d ever seen.

Maybe he thought this was it. This is what he was missing. The Field of Giant Yellow

Sunflowers. He jumped up one large leaf at a time till he reached the top of the

mammoth sunflower. He must be 8 feet high and thought he could almost reach the sky.

He was just getting settled on the mammoth flower head. Then one finch landed. Then

another, and another and they just kept landing. Now there were all chirping “seeds,

seeds, seeds”. There were purple ones, blue ones, yellow one, and red ones. This is just

too crowded and the seeds are a bit prickly. It was just getting too loud. Freckles asked

a red finch where a quite place would be. The red finch just chipped “strawberries,

Strawberries, strawberries” and pointed his wing. Freckles looked across the field of

Mammoth Sunflowers and wondered how could he ever get to the other side. Then he

remembered his brothers and sisters playing leap pad. He closed his eyes, and swallowed

and jumped and jumped and jumped. He came to the end of the field of Giant Yellow

prickly Sunflowers.
