Razzle Dazzle 'Em


When nature puts on a show
She holds nothing back


The curtains go up
The lights flick on


The stars appear,
"Ta Da!"
Center stage in full costume


Or peel off layer after layer
In a tantalizing
Slow reveal

Colours are chosen for maximun pow!


The result is spellbinding,
magical...

You do believe in magic don't you?


This is a perennial cornflower
Or as I like to call it:
The Razzle Dazzler
