Default MMTPT240 Consuela Beavertail's mission

Welcome to Teapot Tuesday
the Sisterhood of the Traveling Teaparty
and Challenge #240




Consuela Beavertail's mission
Cactus by Christine Corona
Cactus plants have prickly spines.
Be careful how you treat them!
The spines protect the tender plants
so animals won't eat them!
The desert is where cacti live.
It's very hot and dry there.
Cactus plants do very well,
but other plants might die there.

Consuela Beavertail de la Cactus was on a mission.
she longed to ask for help to bring her plan to fruition.
She glanced over at her neighbor, was Jean home?
She was an expert with hair dryer, mousse and comb
As a retired, kind and capable beautician
would or could she help with her condition?

Consuela struggled with all her might
so she could visit Jean and relay her plight
She hopped on over and knocked on her door
Jean hurried through the house & across the floor.

"However did you get over here?", she asked
"I struggled until my shallow roots were free
you see I require your help with a task
so I hopped on over here quite quickly,
I know cacti have a reputation for being somewhat prickly.
But I promise you it's so we won't get bit and become sickly.
I dream of being glamorous just like the other plants that flower.
but I've yet to produce anything like that under my own power.
I thought you could use your expertise
and try to make me beautiful, if you please.
You're well known for your beautification talents
I just want to be pretty I don't need to win any Beauty Pageants.
If you would be so kind and generous
I'll make sure the experience is not too treacherous."

Jean gazed upon her spiny neighbor
as she wasn't too keen on getting stuck
(42,000 prickers she couldn't duck)
A point she didn't want to belabor
hmm, she thought, just my luck!

Jean thought fast and said, "Dear Consuela, don't you know when the desert blooms
it is more beautiful that anyone could assume?
Why as an Opuntia basilaris you shouldn't be embarrassed! you are gorgeous and fabulous.
As a beavertail you will have magenta blooms
a color so vibrant you make people swoon.
Now just be patient your turn will come soon enough
I don't mean to seem grouchy or gruff --
but God made you as delightful as can be
trust in Him and you will see."

Consuela Beavertail de la Cactus hopped back to her flowerbed
digging in her roots while Jean's advice swirled in her head.
And just as Jean had promised, the following Spring
Consuela felt a few very strange things.
Her hopes and patience had paid off
She was adorned with a flowery coif
Rings of regal magenta flowers for her hair
You can look but don't touch them - beware.


CHALLENGE TRANSLATION: Bring hairdressers, cactus, cacti or flowers.

Special Note: Jean has macular degeneration and can no longer craft. When writing her a note write large.

EXTRA POINTS FOR EXTRA COOKIES (EPEC):
Bring Scripture and lots of flowers

Fran, your rhyming couplets are amazing.
Between work and hosting VSN, I might not have time to make anything from this, but I will be commenting in the gallery and seeing what I can pull out of my stash.

I almost tossed this cactus stamp when we moved as I hadn't used it in the 5 years since I bought it. I felt very out of my element as I'm not familiar with desert colours or vegetation. Here is MINE.

Well, I finished mine, and then realized my flowers are pretty much incognito and my colors are not even close to the teapot! It's been one of those weeks at my house!!

Here's my Scripture for Jean

Just FYI, deleting a duplicate does often cause problems with the remaining image. But it sounds as if you worked it out - going in to the remaining upload and editing it, resubmitting the original image, will fix it .
