  • Flowers.<br/><br/>It's really blooming marvellous what a flower can convey<br/><br/>Sometimes when you are lost for words and don't know what to say;<br/><br/>Flowers speak of welcome,they can speak of love and grief,<br/><br/>Of life and death and comfort,of hope and of belief.<br/><br/>Flowers are prophetic like the darling buds of May,<br/><br/>The heady scent of lilac tells us summer's on it's way.<br/><br/>The pansies cheerful faces as they look towards the sun,<br/><br/>Adaisy's folding petals saying "Once more day is done."<br/><br/>Aflaming coloured climber delighting one and all<br/><br/>Ahaven for the blackbirds that share the garden wall.<br/><br/>As hollyhocks and fragrant stock stand reaching for the sky<br/><br/>The buddleias and asters attract the butterfly.<br/><br/>A visual recollection with plants from far off places<br/><br/>The fragrant sweet reminder of treasured long gone faces.<br/><br/>A time of new significance,the blossom at it's prime,<br/><br/>A garden of remembrance that's stood the test of time.<br/><br/>With any growing work of art your faith is all you need,<br/><br/>Amazing how much beauty comes from just one tiny seed.<br/><br/>Do step into your garden as it's bursting into bloom,<br/><br/>It's joyous floriferous heights will soon dispel all gloom.
