Wondrous women of worth where beauty blossoms and buds bloom
Displayed in diverse shades and colorful hues
And visited by many winged butterfly and bee
Gracing gardens, meadows, and vases so elegantly and effortlessly
Models and muses of classic paintings
Monet’s Waterlilies to Vincent Van Gogh’s Sunflowers to Hiroshige’s Hibiscus
All works of art naturally created and inspired
Tiny seeds are planted, fertilized, and watered with sun
Fresh roots and new lives always growing have begun
All flowers are equal and beautifully unique
From country charm to urbanite to florist chic
Whether solo in the spotlight or in a beautiful bouquet
Flowers bring smiles to faces, joy to hearts, and brighten our days!
