Flower Power

Here's a competition to write a poem using the word 'flower'. There's a £25 prize. My attempt is here.

That gives me a good excuse to post another picture from the garden.

  3. I'd like a dress in that colour and pattern of the flower. Is it harebell? Good luck in the competition, it's a great poem.

    1. The pattern would make a great slinky evening gown, Suzy. They're snake's head fritillaries. (Fritillaria melaegris)

    yellow upon orange
    gold dust, sapphire, lapis
    peacock eyes on ruby
    jewels of the air
