July Word List from the Toads -- Spring Garden Pleasure
M gave us a list of ten words, (fresh, burst, defy, chain, struck, forward, exchange, customary, refer, and close)of which we are to use at least three in a poem.
His post at the Toads showed some very pretty flowers from his California garden and I took that at a hint to show something from our Texas garden, which in actuality is our side yard plantings background to soften the neighbors poolside scenery.
The pink flowering plants in my pictures was originally one plant which we transplanted in the bed on our property line border. Now it comes up, "wild" as I say it, for a pleasant surprise. And it is spreading from one plant to now about six feet long. BTW, those leaves will grow to over six feet in height. Everything is larger in Texas (past blog link)
For several years we did not know what the plant was. Then a blog post pasted it on my Facebook and a friend told me it was a "ginger plant." I have confirmed that, via a Google search.
