Self-made flower

I am a self-made flower!

(This is my first attempt to create an image using Libre Office Draw.)

Years ago I was struck by a cartoon in le Bulletin des Agriculteurs, a French language farm paper. It showed a neat row of flowers in bloom, all standing up straight with perfectly shaped petals. Except for one. It looked rather limp and bedraggled with petals missing from its asymmetrical flower. The flower beside it asked:

– What happened to you?

– Nothing! It’s only that I haven’t let the Master Gardener help me. I am a self-made flower!

Self-made Christians aren’t very attractive either.
