Miss Marble apart from being the only witch in the neighbourhood was also a very house-proud woman.
Having lived at 46 Grimace Street a long time she had been able to cultivate a beautiful garden and her spring blooms were the talk of the street.
No one else could grow flowers like Miss Marble.
Then again no one had the resources Miss Marble had either. Years of experimentation had led to the formulations she used each year to make the red redder, the yellow more yellow and the green sparkle.
Such was her pride that on spring afternoons she would sit outside and share an evening brew with her neighbour, the lady with the grey bangs, and together greet the passers by who came in their droves to view Miss Marble’s garden.
Everyone marvelled at the beauty of her garden, but never became privy to her secrets.
