BLANKET FLOWERS



A Flower is a Flower

I did not bring you roses
When you searched for something rare,
Instead I brought you daisies
And I hoped you wouldn't care;

And now I look behind me
With a wistful little smile - 
You would have taken dandelions
And loved me all the while.

  3. I just love this poem!! Most of the Blanket Flowers here are yellow with red in the center. These are different; red! So pretty, almost exotic looking. And I see the bumble bee! Maybe even two!

    1. I have seen the variety you mentioned Ginny. They are very pretty too. They seem to attract a lot of bumblebees. Glad you enjoyed the poem :)

    1. I love all flowers but do have my favorites. Roses used to be at the top of the list but since I have been discovering all kinds of flowers/wildflowers in blogging, I now have many :)

I thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading them very much and always try to return a visit. As I do monitor comments it may take a while for them to appear, even quite late depending on what is going on and how much time I am able to spend on the computer.

Also, there are times when I delete by mistake, so if something you have written to me is gone, it's usually because my fingers have pushed the wrong button!
