Best Dressed Flowers In the Garden

The clematis is a bridal gown,

the spiderwort a hat,

the creeping thyme a chorus

asking of the weed, "what's that?"

Once again I was inspired by someone else's blogpost. I wrote this one today after visiting Nature Girl's Blog. To see the photos that inspired this poem, click here.

    To answer your question at OSI, anyone can offer a prompt. We like to showcase your work on the Sunday your prompt runs, so if you make a suggestion, please note when it appears and send us a poem by the Saturday before (We like to be done the night before!)
