Carnations! Um, no, daffodils!
And, well, there's lilacs, honeysuckle
and lilies of the valley... I admire red roses,
but they die on me, peonies, though gorgeous,
are run over with ants, mums suffer in the desert heat.
I love shamrocks and iris and verbena twining, and, especially,
the white violets that vie with other spring buds racing to reach heaven
in my overrun gardens, in January! ... Okay, I think a bunch of all would suffice!

Dear Erin, if I may call you by this name. This is the first time I saw your writing, as you described a few flowers, which I grew up with. My dad used to grow carnations on our balcony. He made them grow bigger, stronger and beautiful. He used to insert grains of barley in their stems.

Lilac and roses, I keep multiplying them every year in my garden. On my farm I used to have fields of shamrock. In my garden I have iris and lilies and more. I love flowers and I let them grow in large patches. Your poem describes well my flowers too, but you are lucky to have them in January. I have to wait at least four months. I talk to them when I water them. I rarely cut them unless I have a guest who loves them.

Great poem, keep writing, I will read you.

Okay! :) I'm partial to red carnations, myself, but a bunch of most any flowers is guaranteed to make my day. :) Needed the sunshine this one brought...thank you. :)

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
