    Peonies are a very beautiful early spring shrub that have huge blooms. They are very popular in cemetaries because they boom around Memorial Day.

    I know they are weeds but I love dandelions. I even wrote a poem about them yesterday. I'll post it below just to show you why i love them so much. Morgan

      Post a name of a flower or shrub - Page 9 11111
    Dandelions
    Morgan

    From where I am now in my new found perspective
    I notice things many others may recognize
    Such as the freedom of being able to express emotion
    Or the beauty and wonder of the night skies

    But in my youth there were was no time to perceive such things
    Pain was my only reality as my life was a prison
    The door had never opened to the beauty around me
    Abuse and neglect were my reality of loveliness I had no vision

    Yet in all the manipulation the turmoil and the fear
    There stands out something I enjoyed every year
    Every spring when the sun would first warm the ground
    I could sit and enjoy lovely dandelions all around

    The yellow blooms all abuzz with bees
    Were a lifeline to my existence in many varied ways
    I loved the yellow blossoms
    I would take in their beauty how I relished those days

    When you are neglected and unattended in as a child
    You learn ways to survive to make up for the emptiness
    You don’t know it is not normal behavior
    A child does not understand the harshness

    The love they feel for their caretakers
    Their abusers if you please
    Far outweighs the need to flee from harm
    They are brought emotionally to their knees


    I believed my abusers loved me
    Of that I had no doubt
    You couldn’t have convinced me otherwise
    No matter what your clout

    As children to admit we are unwanted
    Is emotional suicide
    So we ignore our true feelings
    And inward we learn to hide

    Dandelions, what do these have to do you may say
    With the torture and neglect you suffered so long ago
    Let me tell you the rest of the story
    And then I hope you will know
     
    There was one thing more these harbingers of summer brought
    To a child going hungry they tasted pretty good
    Can you see it in your mind’s eye a child of only six
    Sitting in a field of yellow consuming them as food

    I would lay down among the blossoms
    With the sun on my face and smile
    With a full stomach of these plants
    I would forget the hell of home for a while

    To this day when spring arrives and the sun begins to warm
    And I see a field of dandelions with their heads of yellow gold
    I remember that happiness I experienced
    And the peace they brought to my soul

    The next time you see a dandelion
    What the world considers a weed
    Remember they once brought peace
    To a little child in bitter need
