Soft rain fell all night –
my nasturtiums, zinnias,
cosmos are smiling.

Dead-headed flowers –
wished my garden was ten times
the size. More zinnias!

Heard a faint buzzing -
hummingbird exploring my
red geranium.

Glad I didn’t plant
the impatiens yesterday –
clear and cold last night.

Planted the pansies –
purple, white, blue, and yellow –
sweet flower faces.

Had to buy flowers –
hot pink geraniums to
hang on the porch. Bam.

Sweet forget-me-nots
spread beneath the red maple
like a blue carpet.

Woodchucks enjoyed a
pansy flower salad as
a snack last evening.

Will lillies open
if you stare at them all day?
I’ll give it a try.

A soft rain makes the
flowers so happy — they drink
water greedily.
