Q: What did the big flower say to the little flower?
A: Hi, bud!
Explanation: Spring is in the air in the northern hemisphere and gardens are blooming!
Bud is a word that is used as a synonym for friend, short for buddy. My next-door neighbor was named Buddy when I lived in Minnesota; Buddy was my buddy, my bud, my friend.
Bud is also a word used for the small bump on a plant that develops into a flower.
This joke is funny because it plays with two meanings of the word bud.
Watch these buds turn into flowers and then read The Little Prince to learn about making a flower your bud, your friend.
