My garden is such a colourful sight, with pretty roses and scented sweet peas. An abundance of blooms, what pure delight! Beautiful butterflies gently alight on flowers dancing on the summer breeze. My garden is such a colourful sight Sweet night scented stocks abloom at midnight their aroma is always sure to please. An abundance of blooms, what pure delight! Carnations in purple, scarlet and white are visited by busy bumble bees. My garden is such a colourful sight A haven for birds I watch them in flight they alight on peach blossom from the trees. An abundance of blooms, what pure delight! Pretty pansies smile in clay pots so bright I love beautiful flowers such as these. My garden is such a colourful sight An abundance of blooms, what pure delight! 190 syllables, 10 syllables per line checked with how many syllables Contest Villanelle me flowers Sponsored by Broken Wings 06~13~16

Beautiful imagery and wonderful flow; there is music in this poem. I didn't want it to end (but that's true of most of Jan's poems I read).
