Bindweed šŸ

The battle of the bindweed
A creepy damned affair
As under fence and through crevice
The stuff is everywhere
A wrapping round the plant stems
A stranglehold that thwarts
Growth and health and thriving
As it chokes and kills in short!

And though troublesome in plenty
Thereā€™s one good thing it does
For its blooms produce a pollen
For moth larvae and bees that buzz
And so for gardener the bindweed battle
May be a constant fight
Yet a battle won on one front
May be a war lost in hindsight!

Nature’s Paintbrush

Drops from Natureā€™s paintbrush
Splattered on the wayside
In a bouquet of resplendent colour
Dotted in the hedgerow
Amidst the fragrances of Spring
Pouring outĀ into the landscape
As buds burst into bloom

Gerbera

The Gerbera in splendid bloom
The colours of the sun
Resplendent in their majesty
With heads held high; each one

Such fabulous capitulum
In reds and pinks and gold
The Gerbera amassed in vase
Eye candy to behold

Cupid’s Chocolates

Cupidā€™s chocolates, roses red
Petals scattered and outspread
Hearts abound, love in the air
Romance here and everywhere
Flowers and sweets much more beside
Valentineā€™s hearts burst with pride
Love the blessing above all
Free and unconditional
