AUTUMN FLORAL POP

AUTUMN FLORAL POP

Yellow, orange and red,

Art planted in flowerbed…

Purple and green

Accent this scene,

To show not everything’s dead.

Commercial properties

Ornamentals squeeze…

Right into Fall

Their money’s worth all,

To maximize customer “tease”.

SIDEWALK ORNAMENTALS

SIDEWALK ORNAMENTALS

Little brown morsels on the walk,

As if where a goose might stalk…

Of a plant nature,

Pine cones–nomenclature–

Literally pushed off the stalk.

Old pine cones make way for new,

I think they’re spruce, don’t you…

Smaller than pine

Seeds small and fine,

Lying there looking so blue.

Maybe squirrel or bird trickle-down

In feeding threw them to ground…

They await a broom,

Detritus soon

Destined to be compost pile bound!

THE RED IN BED

THE RED IN BED

(Not what you think!)

 

Among ornamental plants,

One easily grants…

Space to the extent

Of an ornament,

With no flowers but in red pants!

Actually in this flower bed

Are leaves and stems all red…

With striking appearance

Brooking no interference,

They make the place lively in bed!
