The Promise by BrightStar2 The Promise by BrightStar2
I am not sure what these are, I thought another type of magnolia, but I could be wrong....
This is dedicated to :iconpenguinflavoureddoom: for her birthday, and one of her wonderful poems
for you to read, which I thought was beautifully written with lots of emotion.

Here's wishing you have a wonderful birthday. :iconhappybirthdayplz:

The Promise
by *penguinflavoureddoom

tears fall silently,
my mouth left open in a silent sob
a sob that will never come --
-- not while you can see

and yet, you know.
you know a storm is coming;
you know I'm going to fall;
you know that this may kill me.

promises fly fervently
from your lips.
and I know from your tone,
your touch, your face

you believe them.
you believe them wholeheartedly.

[I wish I could, too.]

The Promise tears fall silently,
    my mouth left open in a silent sob
    a sob that will never come --
-- not while you can see

and yet, you know.
    you know a storm is coming;
    you know I'm going to fall;
    you know that this may kill me.

promises fly fervently
     from your lips.
     and I know from your tone,
     your touch, your face

you believe them.
you believe them wholeheartedly.

[I wish I could, too.]

THey are one of many types of Azaleas or Rhododendrons,
which are very related. :D
There are many many many right here where I live in my town on the coast, and on my property, are so many colours and varieties alone!
:faint:

We even have our Azalea Festival for 4 days this weekend!

It's such big deal around here, because these varieties are so prolific.

They come in all kinds of sizes, shapes, colours, and multi-colours, but something about the way the inside looks, you can identify them.
:aww:

I always look at the name, and advice other to take a shot of the names
so not to forget what flower was being taken, and I did't do it....
How lovely, seeing lots of beautiful flowers in bloom is such a deligh. :iconflowerplz:

Are you going...Not much goes on here, but we do have the Chelsea flower show here
close by once a years, its on the BBC too..
its actually more for gardeners but some beautiful plants
and flowers to be seen and wonderful designs....love to watch it.
Thank you :D :hug:
