In the garden, 'color me red'

Welcome our friends to flowers without end
here we feature 'color me red'
from columbine to rose our story flows
with hues of  scarlet in our head

Pretty in pink, the snapdragons drink
while the strawberries grow sweet by the hour
Queens tears too, in their red hue
are starting to open their flowers


Ranunculus long stems, lilies color without end
they all seem to brag and boast
Orchid cactus shines in pots and in minds
tender flowers on prickly hosts

so now we are through, with taunting you
with some of our 'color me red'
we have many more, yet, blogger's a chore
so we'll leave it to imagination instead
