Have you ever seen a Columbine flower? Let me share with you the yellow variety that is growing in my garden...
Who shall the fairy be
For the letter C?
There's candytuft, and cornflower blue,
Campanula and Crocus too,
Chrysanthemum so bold and fine,
And pretty dancing Columbine.
Yes, Columbine! The choice is she;
And with her, see,
An elfin piper, piping sweet,
A little tune for those light feet
That dance among the leaves and flowers
In someone's garden.
(Is it ours?)
And look at the petals...they make perfect little fairy shoes!
Thank you for letting me share one of my favorite flowers! Do you have a favorite flower?
