Storyboard Text

  • Beginning: Childlike
  • Middle: Transitioning
  • End: Adultlike (Emily Hayden P.5)
  • In the beginning of the story, Lizabeth acts more like a child. She lead her group of friends to mess with Miss Lottie. The one thing they always mess with are her marigolds. Poor Miss Lottie just wants nice flowers but the kids dont want her to have beauty.  '“Who out there?” Miss Lottie’s backside came down and her head came up as her sharp eyes searched the bushes. “You better git!”'
  • In the middle of the story Lizabeth finds out things in life aren't always perfect. As she listens in on her parents talking she finds out that her father is having a hard time finding a job and feels he cant be the rock of the family anymore. "My mother, who was small and soft, was now the strength of the family; my father, who was the rock on which the family had been built, was sobbing like the tiniest child. Everything was suddenly out of tune, like a broken accordion."
  • At the end Lizabeth has a moment where she emotionally snaps. She wakes up and goes to Miss Lottie's marigolds. In confusion and anger she starts to rip them from the flower bed, killing the beautiful flowers. When Miss Lottie comes out of her house she looks sad. "For as I gazed at the immobile face with the sad, weary eyes, I gazed upon a kind of reality that is hidden to childhood. The witch was no longer a witch but only a broken old woman who had dared to create beauty in the midst of ugliness and sterility".
