This is a story about a little pink flower named Rosebud who lives underground, deep within the confines of the soil. Rosebud feels safe and secure there, unburdened by the annoyances and dangers of the outside world. One day the little pink Rosebud hears some obtrusive tapping on her dark and uninviting door. It’s Rain who wants desperately to come inside, but despite its soft and gentle attempts, the little flower turns it away to return to its homestead in the sky. Next, Sun comes to visit Rosebud. It has a soft and welcoming voice, but can't entice the little flower either, and is sent back to where it came from up above the clouds. Finally, Rain and Sun decide to make the journey together to persuade the little tiny Rosebud to come out of her dreary home. When Rosebud finally concedes, the tiny flower discovers a whole new universe, one in which it can blossom and experience the growth that only the open horizons can provide!
