How the Rainbow Came to Be
"I wonder where we will go when winter comes and all of us die," expressed one flower to the other.
"I don't know," said the other flower. "We make the earth a beautiful place during the spring and summer. It doesn't seem fair that we don't get to have a place to go to after we die."
The Great Spirit overheard them talking, and decided that the flowers should not have to die and give no more enjoyment. He decided to put their colors in the rainbow.
Next time you look up at the rainbow, look for the Baby Breath's blue, the Sunflower's yellow, the Tiger Lily's orange, and all of the other flowers colors, shining bright until the next year's spring.
