Snow White and Rose Red

My two Camellia japonicas blooming has reminded me of a fairy tale,

Snow White and Rose Red (Schneettweichen und Rosenrot).

My sister and I had some relation to this story.

She was a redhead and I a blond.

That is where the link ends…I hope.

As with most fairy tales,

the good little girls turn the monster (bear) into a prince and marry him and his brother.

Mothers, let’s rewrite these PLEASE.

Leave in the good and kind,

but change the reward to a self-fulfilling ending instead of a wedding.
