a group of smiles
poolside on a sunny day -
blue plumbagos
add charm in blooming petals
water splashes tease the sky

the plumbagos
even their stems

Love "water splashes tease the sky."

I have never heard the name plumbago. I don't know if they grow here, so it was fun finding them in your haiku and art making Gillena!

Beautiful Gillena. We used to have a bed of Plumbagos. They got out of control and husband took them out. I thought they were beautiful! The bunnies liked them too, had babies under them.
