Storyboard Text

  • Beginning: Childlike
  • Y'all git! Go on home!
  • Middle: Transitioning
  • Twenty-two years, Maybelle, twenty-two years, and I got nothing for you, nothing, nothing.
  • End: Adultlike
  • Lizabeth, look.
  • M-miss Lottie!
  • "We had to annoy her by whizzing a pebble into her flowers or by yelling a dirty word, then dancing away from her rage, reveling in our youth and mocking her age." Lizabeth, Joey, and the other kids taunt Miss Lottie by throwing rocks and chanting "Old lady witch!" at her.
  • "Where did I fit into this crazy picture? I do not now remember my thoughts, only a feeling of great bewilderment and fear." After hearing her parents argue about their situation in life, Lizabeth becomes fearful and lost about her future and her place in the world.
  • "I know that that moment marked the end of innocence." Destroying the marigolds was Lizabeth's last act of childhood. She realized that Miss Lottie was not a witch, but merely a woman who had the courage to create beauty in a place filled with ugliness. Lizabeth's realization and acceptance of this was the end of her innocence and the beginning of her compassion. By destroying the marigolds, Lizabeth essentially destroyed her youth.
