Huge plant sale

A “huge plant sale” is promised here,

The hand-made sign proclaims;

Intrigued, I opt to take a look,

Investigate the claims.

And sure enough, the sign was right —

Sequoias! Redwoods high!

And soaring even taller still:

A beanstalk touched the sky!

I hope the sale’s a big success

Amid the fertile loam;

And yet I’ll ask how anyone

Could get such huge plants home?
