Granee and the children are overly excited about the flowers that they have planted, however as they grow they do not look exactly like normal flowers and they cannot determine what is different about them.
The children decide to go to the flower garden to pick some of the flowers to take to Granee in order to surprise her. When they try to pick them however they are much too hot to touch or handle. The children recoil and shout Hot Petunias ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, ow. Is it the summer sun that has made the flowers too hot to handle, or did Mr. Pluto Onium accidentally bring something home from work that affected the seeds?
