Air Date: April 11, 1969
Previous Episode: 1044
Next Episode: 1046

Mister Rogers arrives with a flower pot full of daffodils which he takes to the kitchen where several others potted plants are on display. The plants have been provided by Mr. McFeely for Mister Rogers to share.

After looking at each of the flowers and talking about how they all start as small seeds, Mister Rogers sings You're Growing and thinks about a group of children making flowers out of paper.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, King Friday wonders why it is so quiet. Queen Sara explains that everyone has gone to Someplace Else because of his order that loud play must be done elsewhere.

When Handyman Negri returns to the Neighborhood of Make-Believe for supplies, he tells King Friday and Queen Sara about the community center being build at Someplace Else and invites them to see it. King Friday refuses to visit without a printed formal invitation which X the Owl is happy to provide.

King Friday and Queen Sara arrive at Someplace Else and are greeted by everyone singing We Welcome You Today. With them they have brought a gift for the community center -- a formal portrait of the king and queen and a bouquet of paper flowers.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers says goodbye to each of the flowers as he concludes for the day.


As Mister Rogers enters the house, he thanks Mr. McFeely who responds from outside. Mr. McFeely is not seen on camera in this episode.

As Mister Rogers looks at the flowers on the table, and again during the film of children making paper flowers, Waltz of the Flowers from Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker plays in the background.
