A Garden Poem

my morning glory greenhouse fence

Kind hearts are the gardens,
Kind thoughts are the roots,
Kind words are the flowers,
Kind deeds are the fruits.
Take care of your garden
And keep out the weeds,
Fill it with sunshine
Kind words and kind deeds.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

The flowers are lovely! Around here, I've only seen morning glory in blue. Though I must add the other colours are super too.
