Flower garden : THE BOTTLE BRUSH plant
Have you ever seen a Bottlebrush?
They’re the most amusing sort of flowers.
They haven’t got the flirty Daffodil’s pout.
Instead, they have bristles on the stems, sticking their heads out.
They are nothing like elegant Roses and enticing Water Lilies.
They lack the radiance of a Sun flower or the daintiness of an Edelweiss.
They are not the gracious Angelonia, neither the prim Geraniums.
They are spiky and cheeky and winsome,
And you know what? – they are just fine like that,
As they have their own songs to hum.
