The Mole Sisters set out to do nothing at all. But when a busy bee buzzes by, they follow him and end up in a lovely meadow of flowers. The Mole Sisters begin smelling and their noses become covered in pollen. Soon they look just like flowers! With a couple of big sneezes, they are back to being Mole Sisters.
