The Beauty of Pollination

An amazing and beatiful video on pollination.

 

"Flowers in the Yard" by: Deanna Dickinson McCall

A ranch house with flowers by its side
tells much of the woman who lives inside.
It tells of feelings of hope and pride --
a feminine love of beauty she refuses to hide.
for flowers lend an air of sweet grace
that's often rare in a ranch's barren space.
They brighten the morning and scent the evening breeze
with an eloquence that a cow ranch rarely sees.

Often started from the slip or see given from a friend
flowers are often something a woman will always lend.
For to her. their simple beauty is a joy to share,
If she had her way, they'd be virtually everywhere!
While husbands and men woudl fail to see
flowers have useful properties
They may realize they fill a womans need;
for if flowers grow, so will she succeed.
