Haiku: Inside Gladiolas

Lovely sturdy stalks

Bees and hummingbirds climb in

Sword leaves beauty spikes

Thanks to Fe Cases for sharing her lovely flowers from her garden.

The Common sneezeweed
Attracts bees and butterflies
Large showy flowers

Golden petals and red head Common sneezeweed
Golden petals and red headed Common sneezeweed

Allergy sufferers need not worry about being around sneezeweed.  Interesting that this flower has a history of use when crushed to make a form of snuff that caused sneezing. Fascinating!  Legend also says that these flowers sprang from the ground where Helen of Troy’s tears fell.

Male bares unborn young

Mates for life entrusted care

Female gives her eggs

Haiku: Red-tailed

Effortless soaring

keen hunter with strong talons

A majestic hawk

Red-tailed hawk perched in a tree
Red-tailed hawk perched and surveying its surroundings
