Floral Thursday: Flowers forever


image

Flowers forever,
Sun smiling,
Earth warming,
Beautiful flowers,
Elegantly emerging.
Naturally perfect,
Hues to woo,
Sensual synergy,
Serene and inspired!

Floral Thursday: Fortuitous Fuchsia


image

Fortuitous fuchsia,
Fascinating;
Fastidious;
Fanciful!
Whimsical wings;
Stamens sing;
A wish in the wind:
Lingering twinkling,
Fairy dust glittering,
Delicate bells tinkling.

Gardener’s delight


image

As warm days fade,
The gardener is proud
Of what’s been made
By fork and spade
And nature’s magical ways.
Loud bursts of orange,
Punctuated with pink,
Daft dashes of
Laughing lemons:
Reflecting a season
Of the gardener’s
Signature taste.

Spirit of summer


image

Surrounded by summer blooms,
A perfectly secreted
Scented summer seat
Inspires a stolen siesta.
Sleepy eyelids bathe in
Warm lapis and
Lavender,
Inducing imaginative
Dreams;
Doves dozing,
Herons plunging,
Children’s
Bubbly babble.
Wafting petals,
Summer snow;
The ministry of bees
Indulging in
Pollen heaven.
An enchanting
Party of
Butterflies
Enjoying
A  tipsyTarantella.
Sunshine shimmers
A fizzy glimmer of
Fairy dust
As devas’
Mischeviously
Dive in
And out
Of Delphiniums’
Drunken trumpets.

Floral Thursday: Summer sensation


image

Every now and again, I think I’ll have a floral Thursday, just for a change.
Yesterday when I was out walking, I felt the change in the air and a slight sadness that in a few weeks the colours will begin to fade, the floral aromas will lessen and eventually we will say goodbye to the butterflies and the bees until next year; so, I decided to celebrate summer with this montage of some of the colourful photos that I have enjoyed taking.
I hope you enjoy them too, with a cup of tea, Pims, lemonade or glass of wine.
