Caught red-handed, uh, petaled

Over here.

Don’t be so obvious.

Saunter this way. Casually.

Need to plant a thought if you don’t mind.

Some are content to never see what is beyond the wall.

Some only wish to grow where they are planted.

Others know their roots and still want to make a break.

 Even if the outside isn’t exactly a rose garden.

Those that dare, encounter new adventures and unlikely acquaintances.

All the time hoping there will be no cutting remarks.

Yes, red does look good on both of us. No matter how different, there’s always something in common if one actually looks for it. (© image)

      Is Red an advanced guard? Recon? Someone in the filed might want to suggest an alternative camp pattern…
      Thanks for adding a comment to this flower vase

    It’s a scout flower, like ants do. If it lives others will follow unless Monsanto comes along with one of it’s killers.

    My sprig of mint coming through the fence has shot up a good six inches!

    You can’t keep a beautiful flower down. No matter what they find a way to flaunt their beauty.

    The grass is always greener on the other side! I am always amazed how determined plants seem to be. Lovely!

      How appropriate and astute your first line is. Today’s the lawn crew’s arrival. Maybe on will have a poet’s soul and hold back the weedwhack attack. Thanks for adding a blooming comment

    So much more appreciated than if it were one of dozens.

      Gee, hadn’t thought of that, but you’re right. Molly had a muzzle dusted with gold powder and some sneezes after greeting that flower.I need to wander back that way and see if it also charmed the yard guys. Thanks for adding to the petal meet-up

    just shows that truth is stranger than fiction, who’d have believed just reading about, it but there it is in all its glorious red


Always glad to hear from readers.
