Deena and Olivia in 1458
Date 1980

In front of the stoop at 123 Sesame Street, Olivia observes Deena playing garden in Sesame Street Episode 1458. Deena expresses some anxiety about her sunflower not growing despite having planted the seed just moments earlier. Olivia explains that it "Takes a Little Time" for a flower to grow; sometimes days and weeks.

She sings about having patience and that things like walking, talking, and growing take a little time, love, and work, waiting until you get it right. Deena goes through a list of things, asking if those things take time, too. Like, roses, noses, and reading books. Finally, she decides that instead of a sunflower, she'll plant a tulip, expecting it to grow immediately.
