My spring garden flowers …
Oh! how I love my spring garden flowers,
they brighten my world and make me smile,
colors are brilliant from April showers,
and little pansy faces beguile.
Johnny-jump-ups will always surprise me,
they are so prolific and abundant,
they appear where not expected to be,
in my garden, there must be a hundred.
Bright yellow daffodils bring so much cheer,
like sunshine even when hiding in shade,
bulbs give me more beautiful blooms each year,
Oh! but all too soon they begin to fade.
The Alida Dwarf Iris is lovely in shades of blue,
someday I will create a blue garden,
with all flowers of beautiful blue hues,
and play for them music on my ardin.
Along the meandering border,
pinks and other fragrant dianthus
seem to be saying in flowing order,
walk this way, follow our scents, enjoy us.
Many lovely flowers greet me each day,
I will make many little baskets gay,
for kids to leave on doorsteps on May Day,
they will have fun, ring the bell, run away.
