Mother Nature’s Timing

Isn’t Mother Nature’s timing grand?
First the forsythia to lead the band.

Then the tulips & daffodils;

Seeing them blossom still gives me chills.

Next come the azaleas – light & bright,

Followed by rhododendrons, brilliant in sunlight.

And let’s not forget roses from Spring to Fall.

Each of these flowers is meant to enthrall

Bees & butterflies on the wing

Landing lightly to do their thing.

Ah! Mother Nature, right on time;
So this completes my flowery rhyme.


P.S. When we were in California, I missed the end of  “azalea time” here, but in California were beautiful bougainvillea, almost the same pink as the pink azaleas, so once again Mother Nature’s timing was perfect– Mother’s Day & Mother Nature. Doubly perfect!

Notes: The forsythia photo is from a nursery website: The daffodils are from my photos of the Phila. Flower Show in March. The bee & butterfly are from a wonderful blog: by Cheryl, a wildlife gardener.
