Phlox Haiku

pruning the phlox
nervously with big shears
February morning

phlox, purple flame tall phlox, golden rain forest tree, summer flowers


This is what I have been doing lately: pruning my phlox and crepe myrtle and hoping that they will come back stronger this year and not weaker. The picture above shows how crazy my purple flame (tall) phlox went last season.

The haiku above was written for day 3 of National Haiku Writing Month 2015, which is the month of February.

What have you been doing with your flowers, or what have you been doing outside of your house this month?
