Happy Hydrangeas

Happy Hydrangeas,
Smiling at strangers,
Playful faces,
Abundant posies.
Prized petticoats,
Satin ribbons;
Tiptoes
Dancing,
Passers by
Laughing.

Virtuous Verbena

Vivacious,
Elegantly elfin like
Sugar pink posies,
Fancy for fairy
Princesses palaces.
Fragrant, finespun,
Flavour of marzipan;
Magnificent minutiae
Of nature’s manuscript.

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.
