Heather

Hiding away among the green grasses

Colourful stems brighten up the water

Small scented buds send fragrance

Travelling briskly on a western breeze

A Delightful smell greets the nose

Cornflower

#CYW #Cornflower

colourful flowers crowded on the corner

cared for by the colourful yellow insect

collecting copious cups of nectar

checking each and every petal to

create honey from the cornflowers, back in the hive

Pink Carnation

A Pink Carnation (Image : Brian F Kirkham)

#CYW #Carnation-Pink

Popping up around the spring

its the kind of flower that likes a party

noted for its use as a buttonhole flower

keeping up appearances at family occasions

Curves more wiggly than your

average rose

rows upon rows keep each other standing up,

not falling over

at the nearest breath of wind.

they don’t look much, but once trimmed and located

in a gentleman’s suit buttonhole

on a family occasion, they

never fail to impress the guests

Ballerinas

Salford 12th September 2019

Ballerinas : Painting by Inky using Painter Essentials 6


They woke up one spring morning,
at the light of the sun
Bobbing around in a gentle breeze
their dancing – just begun

Over the long grass and daisies they dropped
as their coloured dresses flipped and flopped
and as they danced round in the wind
the daisies waited for the breeze to recind

Duetting with the dandelions
as their seed just flew away
wondering who – apart from the wind
that they would like to play

Pink and purple parading in pairs
above a daisy covered shower
among the blades of fresh green grass
a wonderful coloured flower

Bluebells

Another scribble for the coloryourworld month by inky.

Artwork by Inky – created in painter from google stock art

Birds follow the noise of these colourful flowers

Lightly swaying in the spring breeze

Under the cover of a spruce they’re spread

Enjoying the protection from the passing showers

Beautiful colours to please the eye

Encompassing the area around the tree roots

Launching into a dance routine – upon arrival of the Bees and Butterflies

Landing on the flowers to collect the nectar

Big Wide World

Explore

Salford 4th April 2018

The world is immense – to most people

Over the water there’s places you’ve never been to

During your lifetime – you’ll experience many a new thing

Daffodils won’t be the only flower you chomp on as you

Let your little toes explore the water (with mum and dad’s help)

Enjoying the nice warm sand in a place thats new whilst

Relaxing under a colourful umbrella.

Mother’s Day

Salford 11th March 2018

it was Mothering Sunday today,

and I have had the annual dilemma on what to get my mum for her mother’s day pressie

in the end, I plumped for some flowers and chocolates

(mum was happy with them!)

Flowers in a hotel garden

Flowers in the nao San Rafael suite, in the algarve

plenty of flowers 💐 in this Portuguese resort, but they are eclipsed by some really tall trees.  Fellow ursinians would appreciate these, though I’ve seen more tropical birds than honeybees.

Soil (II)

An acrostic by inky, in response to the daily post prompt

Soil

Some people – call it the ground

One of natures building blocks

If you looked at it – from deep below – you would call it

Life itself

 

Several different creatures – they call it home

On occasion , they climb out of their earthy house for a drop of sun

Insects , worms and nocturnal mammals

Like living underground

 

Some plants – enjoy being

Outside, like trees and bushes, whilst others like

Indoors, mostly because of the weather – all are

Linked by the substance around their roots

Blossom

hanging off the arms of the tree

a sign of things to come

pink and white blooms send a message

to all who walk around it

cheering as the children play

the apples 🍎 are coming on their way!
