|Your muse reminds me of a Masters' impressionist painting of annuals and memories in a garden of your [our] delight. Classic.

|GREEN GENES ...
because you used the word 'pistol' - I had to go look up 'pistil' - which is a female part of a flower - which lead to 'ovary - style - stigma' ... then I just had to check out 'stamen' - the male part ...
now I have better clue as to 'how' the birds n' bees n' butterflies help pollinate your 'rare beauties' ...
Peace - Tom.

|What a blessing to have a Grandmother who appears year in, year out, in the beauty of a garden all around you, Phyllis. What a dear soul she must have been and how wonderful her legacy that endures - both within you and in the fruitfulness your greenfingers/thumbs bring to bear. A most wonderful retelling and very poignant character study. Bless you, Kate xx|

|What a beautiful poem full of memories of flowers - and grandmother.
I love flowers, too, but I'm not very good with growing them. I do have some irises that are so beautiful, but I learned they only bloom once a year. Blessings....

|There's such beauty here, Pea, of thought, memory, colour and feeling but what draws me most is the growth of intensity in the poem as it moves forward and becomes highly personal...and then once again relaxes into the initial refrain which now has another dimension.

|Dear Phyllis, I like this poem very much, because I am not a flower person. But this piece was informative. I wish I were able to send you flowers. I think you would like this and that would make me happy. Stay sweet, and stay true.
GOD BLESS YOU < WITH LOVE
