BATTLE OF THE FLOWERS

BATTLE  OF  THE  FLOWERS   



After a long soggy 
Thunderously angry  month of weather .
Horrible, with intermittent spells of dreadful.
Seeds in ranks like first-battle soldiers
Prepared in 10cm pots (no peat ).
Indifferent germination meant 
A late transplant to ground inmidsummer.  
June was  too cool to ‘bust out all over‘.
Early blooms struggled heroically in July.
Then dawned August bright,
Which brought nothing to their troubles,
But underlined the lateness and slowness
Like an express train on a bank holiday.
The sunflowers’ big cheeky smiles
Peeped at me through September. 
But faded fast in frosty October.
