Cluster

#Fowc #Cluster

Coming to life from beneath the ground

leaves hiding a burst of colour

until its time for the flowers to

say “Hello!” to the bright morning sky. keeping

together for their own protection

each individual flower adding their own bit of

radiant colour to the garden

Seasons First

#WDYS

Kitten watched the stalk of green

in the courtyard

travelling towards the sky

tickling his little paws as he

engages the plant counting the

number of leaves appearing on the stalk

Here’s a girl you see every christmas tide

often seen picking the prickly evergreen

like her life depended on it

later she’ll be putting it carefully around the

yearly table decorations – making the candles look pretty

Growth

#fowc #socs #growth

Getting up at sunlight

reacting to the suns warmth

out pop the little seedlings

who were sleeping away after

taking refreshment in the border – now, there

having a wail of a time – reaching for the sunshine

Razzle Dazzle

#CYW #Razzledazzle

Razzle Dazzle Rose , Created from stock art in Painter by Inky

Relishing the Moment, in the summer sun

a flower that catches the visitors eye

zipping found the flower – bees and butterflies – all after

zesty nectar hidden in and around its petals

leaves frame it off well , showing off its pinkish hues

everyone likes its colours

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
