Forget Me Not


Tiny little flowers

In white, pink and blue
How could anyone
Ever forget you?
For you surely are significant
Your beauty’s not obscure
In my garden you are welcomed
Even though you’re miniature
For size doesn’t designate
A flowers sense of worth
As often it’s the little things
That are most regarded on this earth
Therefore you need not worry
As you grow in my garden plots
For I will always remember you
My little  Forget-Me-Nots

Candy in the garden
Easy on the eyes
Found amongst the rocks
Under sunny skies
Fragrant white  tufts
Umbels with purple centers
Candytuft in the garden
A welcome sight when one enters

Fields of Lavender

A Lavender Day
A Lavender Day

Though you are miles away

Your fragrance fills the air,
Drawing me to the place where you grow,
and spread your purple splendor as far as my eyes can see.

Lavender,  the loveliness of you should be enjoyed more than just one day in May.

A Morning Treasure


Upon taking a morning walk in May,

a bright splash of color enters my day.

It’s  Marigolds growing in a patch,
their colors so vivid, nothing can match
the splendor the sunshine brings to each bloom.

I pause so my eyes can consume
the the sea of colors, orange, yellow, scarlet and gold!
What a morning treasure–a sight to behold!
