Dancing in the warm sunlight
Along the roadside verge
A profusion of flowers –
Blooms of bright delight!
Shades of purple, pink and plum
Interspersed with white
An abundance of blossoms –
What a cheerful sight!
God’s gift to those of us who see
The beauty all around,
A display of perfect splendour
Carpeting the ground!

As you can guess, Amanda, they are one of my favourites, partly because despite being so delicate and beautiful they are also very hardy! xxx

I adore Cosmos…. While I was waiting for my mum at the Oncology Division I would look at the same magnificent photograph every day to calm me down and put me at peace with the world. A stunning picture of this extraordinary flowers blowing in the wind… *sigh* An unasuming little flower that impacts quite a punch.

They are really stunning, Lynda. I bought a packet of seeds and scattered them in the garden about 5 years ago and they have always given me a wonderful display and I have a huge bottle of seeds collected from them which I use to fill in the spaces every year.

Thank you Opt! Wild flowers can inspire all of us I think.

Much as I’d like to, Ji, as I told you before, I don’t have the time do do the awards. Thank you for doing this for all the bloggers. I wish you all the very best with them but please count me out for the meantime. I’m so sorry.
