Friday Flowers: Insect Visitors

Wild blooms along the road
turn to the sun and
open their faces to bees.

Dragonflies skim the water
resting on flowers
of grasses along the bank.

Pollen clings to the body
of a bumblebee
deep in the hibiscus bloom.

Asters offer sweet food
for the long journey
of the Monarch Butterfly.

HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND!!

  3. I guess the birds, bees, bugs and blooms need each other. I especially like the Hibiscus shot.
