Messenger of Love? a Poem


Messenger of Love?

Drooping falls of lavender
you planted in my flower bed

I would have preferred
passion yellow

but compliments and wisdom
do make a lovely bouquet.

Beautiful. :)
Just went to check on Rosie. She's not in her stall right now so, I guess she didn't foal yet :(
Checked on the Fresian baby too. He's grown since I looked a week or so ago :) He's napping right now.

I'll take compliments and wisdom. Passion yellow is lovely, but can lose its oomph if overdone.

I love the lavendar iris. I would take it over a yellow flower any day. (Perhaps because I have a dog named Violet, and lavendar is close to violet.)

They are all beautiful; I'm drawn to soft pastel colours and warm earth tones. :)
