What They Wore

06 Sep

What they wore

Magnolia’s wedding gown
was French satin
with a veil of lacy
water parsnip.

The Rose sisters
classic suits were tailored
pink jersey.

Aliums chose
ruffled sundresses
of yellow lawn.

was crisp and cool
in blue seersucker.

But the Pansies
in their elegant but flirty
little black satins
stole the show.

    How lovely, your photos and poem! Pansies are one of the first flowers for sale in the long cool Springs here by Lake Michigan.

    Perfect poem for the fashion show! When I see pansies in bloom, especially what we call “johnny jump-ups” I think of that old ditty, “We’re all in our places with bright shiny faces. Good morning to you!”

    ‘…love-in-a-mist was crisp and cool in blue seer-sucker’. Brilliant. You captured each blooms sense of fashion so very eloquently and elegantly. I too, am partial to pansies. Mine are waking up again since we’ve had some cooler days. Thank-you for sharing this delightful garden show!

    Thank you all, so much, for dropping by and your comments. I think I am a sister to the flowers (what with my name and all…). That’s why I love to flower-watch.
