Apple blossoms in abundance; sweet aroma in the air.
Begonias burst with brilliance. Blue bells pop up everywhere.
Cherry blossoms cheer with pink; corn flowers cluster blue.
Dandelions dance with wind; Daffodils dance too.
Easter Lily, always early, blooms exquisite white.
Forget-me-nots, fresh-picked by tots, are a Mom’s delight.
Geraniums, garden-fresh, are growing graciously.
Hollyhocks I plucked when young my heart is blessed to see.
Irises with leaves like swords paint rainbows on the lawn.
Johnny-jump-ups have their purple yellow clothing on!
Kangaroo paws, so exotic - come to us sun-kissed.
Lilac bushes, lush with lovely flowers can’t be missed!
Marigold, like its friend the Sun, is glowing too.
Narcissus, so many types of it, now bloom anew.
Orchids of the warmer climes, one-of-a-kind are they!
Peonies, so pretty, and perky poppies are at play.
Queen-of-lace with gracious face, how elegant is she!
Ranunculus, a Buttercup, greets us radiantly.
Sweet pea, looking precious, up the trellis climbs
Tansies, yellow buttons, also love the temperate times.
Uva-Ursi, on long stems, in late spring's breeze will sway.
Violet’s vibrant color gives its name away!
Wax flowers help fill up bouquets on spring wedding days.
Xeranthemum, a sunflower, flaunts her sunny ways.
Yellow wood anemone starts flowering in May.
Zinnia comes later. For Zinnia and others, the sun just has to stay!

Great job. A very pretty poem as well. I'm currently looking up "Q" and "X" flowers, very impressed with yours. I have missed you and reading you - this poem was a great place to start! CayCay

Now if only they could have taught botany, in science class, in THIS fashion ... it would have been much more enjoyable. Beautiful ABCing ... I just looked up "kangaroo paws" and they sure a unique looking flower.

This requires deft craftsmanship and deep knowledge of the theme. And what a wonderful way to end the Z with Zinnia -lends a true crescendo to the composition. Internal rhyme and the alliteration lend it aural beauty. Won't be surprised if this gem gets placed on the very top of the competition, Andrea. Congrats - for me it's a winner.
