Flower Garden

Asters litter beds in rainbow colours
Berries red and black slowly growing
Clover adding bright patches of green
Daisy's dotting the rolling lawns
Enchanting us with their beauty
Fox gloves waving their wands of trumpets
Gerbera brightly show the sun their faces
Hibiscus blown by gentle hot breezes sway
Irises joining in glinting and glimmering
Jasmine flowers spreading out profusely as
Kale fish swim in the pond flashing colour
Lilies floating gracefully give them shelter
Mums giving ground cover to the rolling banks with
Narcissus poking out between them while the
Orange hues of asters are a delightful background for
Peonies some tall most very short nestle beneath
Quince flowers, still their tight buds vie with 
Roses stately and wafting perfume clouds around 
Snapdragons closing their petals over insects
Tansy's rarely seen now a days, here do thrive and 
Uniformly line the garden paths whilst timid
Violets of deep purple shyly peek out and the
White tulips dance amid the rest under hedges of
Xylosma giving height and deep shade for plants
Zinnia's with rings of colour exploding

Hello Shadow, you know what I hate most, when I'm grading a contest, and a poem, blows my mind... At the very moment, I want to fly and comment that poem, while the feelings and my expressions, are still fresh...LOL...I don't think you know what I mean... anyways, that was then. No worries, I'm still in awe's and this poem, was my number one, and I so so so freaking love, everything about it... The ABC's going down, the imagery, and ECT.. I LOVE EVERY THING ABOUT THIS POEM.....LINDA
