Spring is here, the Daffs are out, Primroses and violets too,
cold winter sunshine shining through.
Winter Jasmine yellow and bright,
Blossoming out to catch the light.
Rosemary bursting out it's petals blue
Bumble bees, just a few...
Buzzing in the light of day
Pollen seeking on their way.
Dandelions and Daisies can just be seen
Prizing through the ground on the Southsea Green. --
Pause awhile and smile, as you pass by.
God's gift of Nature, for you and I.
We have some good news from the council this year, more beautiful wildflowers will be grown all over the city instead of the usual gardening competition.
If you have any suggestions for a green space that is highly visible to residents and visitors that could be a good location for an urban meadow, please let them know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org for their consideration.
