Rose

Pink and beautiful.

It’s amazing how this has gone from a drooping bud to a full blown Rose. I use the plant food that came with the flowers.

I don’t know what the ingredients are, the stuff in the little plastic packet is clear and sticky, is it a sugar mix or something like a high energy energy drink?

Nowadays flowers seem to last a lot longer if you feed and look after them.

A perfect subject for art.

Sprigs of spring?

In months my garden

will be aflower,

floral fancies,

blooming anew.

But sadly now

the sight is of grey hue.

Cold sprigs of twigs

leaden coloured,

deadened stems.

Give them some sun,

some warmth

some food?

Then they will improve their mood.

I wait and cry

with many a sigh,

Looking around

For colour on the ground.

Daffodils and Tulips

Crocus and Snowdrops.

Then Bluebells and Violets,

will stir the air,

colours will flare!

Brighten the world,

set bees abuzz,

and waken my love,

of nature.
