Here’s a butterfly cinquain for our Tanka Tuesday theme of flowers, and why we love a certain one best. I can’t say that I have a favorite flower. I really love them all.
If I had to choose, it would be the daylily. It’s a hardy plant that can stand the harsh Michigan winters and even does well in the hot tropical sun in Florida. I’ve grown daylilies everywhere I’ve lived, except the desert. The 120 degrees F. heat was just too much for them.
There are so many varieties and color options from yellow to dark red, with all the tangerine oranges in between. Don’t forget fushia!
