Crazy in love
In love with crazy :)
I can't help it... I love my crazy-looking monarda!
Whether they're dancing out to greet me with a sideways smile
Or trying to scare me with their bright red tentacles
They always tip their Mad-Hatter hats
in my direction
Sometimes I get a surprise "hat-in-a-hat!"
They are more Halloween...
Than Halloween itself
(Mr. Hitchcock would be proud :)
They gather in my garden
in unplanned drifting clusters
But infatuated as I am
I only have eyes (and camera) for one at a time
My first love was Mr. Red
I see this candy-pink fluffy creature
Which is a stunning hot-pink before it fully opens
And now there is a new temptress in my garden
Monarda Bradburiana is her name
(I could fall for her too)
Oh, what the heck
I'll be crazy in love
with them all!
