Asters in My Garden
I had a little aster plant given once to me..
It wasn't very big you know and very hard to see.
I put it in my garden and waited through the year..
For it to blossom purple and bring me lots of cheer.
I waited through the summer.. gently taking care..
I saw it's every leaf that formed and every bud so fair.
Just when September came, and it was soon to pop..
I saw the plant so huge that it made me holler stop!
It had grown to such proportions this little plant of mine..
The plant had grown so much that I wrote this little rhyme.
It took the whole darn corner of my little garden fair..
The people walking by began to really stare.
It's out there now a stunner in my garden very small..
It towers over everything it is so very tall.
The bees and I will love it this little corner treasure..
My garden is so pretty now it's beauty without measure.
I have to go now...the birds are hanging on my screen, covering the top of the Cranberry Viburnum, and the feeder is full of them. They are looking in at me and wondering when I'm going to fill the feeders.....bossy little things. By the way...I just saw my first Junco...what will winter bring?
