Flowers, pretty flowers, who will buy them?

May haps you need them for a dear friend

Flowers, beautiful flowers, pretty and cheap

Well adorn the bride, and make her look sweet


Taken from hedges and vales quite deep

Here are the flowers gathered in a heap

Buy these pretty flowers from me, my dear

To and for your heart’s desire


Here are pretty roses

For those young at heart

Sweet and well-scented

They bloom most in May


Then there are the lilies

Pure, white and holy

Their smooth, snow-white petals

Win them admirers many..


So, wont you buy these flowers

They are used in countless ways

We find them in the bowers

And keep them in a vase……

    I love fresh flowers. Lovely to have the colour and fragrance in the home. Although I buy them, I don’t like picking them, preferring them to stay in their natural setting. A bit of a contradiction I know. I love your floral bouquet here. Have a happy Wednesday.

      hi, I love flowers too, but buy them only for presentation. Whatever is growing in my garden balcony remains on the plant, be it rose, bougainvillea, or some decorative plant until it withers and falls off..
      In our society compound there are a variety of flowering trees, and a few people have the habit of picking them to put at the feet of their deity. One of my friends, however, picks up the fallen flowers after her morning walk, washes them and then uses them, which is a better option, i too feel.
      have a great weekend's already midweek
