My garden lies between the trees Where lilies dance in gentle breeze And lilacs whisper pretty please To a butterfly's caressing tease Nearby glows the buttercup Where honey bees come to sup While hummingbirds on branches squint To catch a glimpse of hyacinths And daffodils in yellow coats Sway to songbirds dulcet notes Queen Anne's lace is also grown With Forget-me-nots and anemones But the rose in beauty stands alone And smiles demurely from her throne ---- Joseph May © 5/2/14

Your write is as lovely as your picture! The rose may be queen, but I have always been partial to wildflowers. None the less, this is a beautiful ode to all of them :) have great day Joseph :)

Beautiful! Immediately had me thinking about The Daffodils by William Wordsworth. I really enjoyed it.
