Floral poetics

NaPoWriMo asked us to write about flowers today. I may write something more serious eventually, but for now, here are some hastily written rhyming couplets, inspired by flowers around Corstorphine Hill this lunchtime. 

the honey bee performs her chores
among the blossoms of the gorse

how pretty is the heather
no matter what the weather

look up, oh can you see
little flowers in the cypress tree?

Plus, can you see the baby bunnies in the bramble patch below? There are at least three, but I don't think any of them show in the photo.

My work has had lots of baby bunnies running around since february. Whey jump in front of my bicycle

Love this post! How lucky to have heather and bunnies. I can see a bunny at the bottom center of the photo, and maybe higher up on the left side.

Always love your pictures. If you look at a large view of the bunny picture closely you can see bunny ears (bodies too).

Hi Juliet,

How lovely your flowers are - I always love to plant flowers in the garden that attract the bees, like lavender.
Happy weekend

Beautiful pictures and words, I loved the second couplet the best. Those violet beauties are indeed beauties, no matter what the weather!
