Wicke / Vetch / La arveja  

Blüten der Wicke
Wie kleine Schmetterlinge
So violett leuchtend

Flowers of the vetch
Like little butterflies
In shiny purple

Flores de arveja
Pequeñas mariposas 
Brillante violeta

    I am not familiar with the word "vetch" but it is so interesting how you describe them like butterflies-- sounds so pretty -- and I am so much like you-- me I keep on dreaming about this certain mall -- never know if it exists in real life but I keep on visiting it in my dreams-- :) dreams sure can be so intriguing! Thanks for sharing yours :)

    They must be magnificent to behold, Gert. I haven't ever seen these flowers, but if they look like shiny purple butterflies, I'm missing something beautiful. Love, Carolyn
