Dogwood, Iris, and Dogs ― Day 29 of NaPoWriMo 2015

 Pink Dogwood Tree
Walking along the sidewalk
When we came upon "this tree"
O, oh, oh, raved another
Pink dogwood tree winding down
Blooming still 'til season's end
In full bloom earlier on
More pink than green this dogwood
Always, blooms til season ends

Blue Beagle Iris
Came upon this flower bed
Iris, blue, trace of purple
Likes afternoon shady spot
Just like my old beagle dog

I love that the flowers remind us of their namesake (not blue, of course)... I feel the nostalgia.
