Daisy Duty

Oleander is ecstatic that the Queen is coming to tea that day, but she has so much to do! She enlists the help of Sally to help her plant daisies (the Queen's favourite flowers) so she can get the task done faster. Oleander soon realises that Sally hasn't been planting daisies at all, she's just been procrastinating! Oleander reminds her that there are delicious, freshly baked scones coming when she finishes, and Sally gets back to her task with renewed vigor. Only this once again doesn't last and now Oleander is very stressed, but she doesn't have time to waste as the Queen has arrived! They welcome her to their lovely tea setup, and she notes how lovely all the daisies are and Sally is quick to point out her contribution pointing to the one daisy she planted.
