Looked like speckledy seed

The soil and my wallet was exceedingly poor Like building a house without any door My garden needs flowers but nothing would grow People were coming to visit the show So I planted some pips looked like speckeldy seed Compliments were flying as did those trumpeting bells Just when I thought that no one could tell " Sir this is not Beaumontia Grandiflora" Said a nerdy old lady surrounded in aura White flowers enhanced by the backdrop of green Stopped oohs and aahs and the Parisienne perfume " ..best looking Jamestown weed that I have ever seen" Stuck like syrup on my fingers somewhat in between
