TOO MUCH OF A GOOD THING

It’s happened again.

A bumper crop of Cockscomb.

If I looked back

I imagine I have written

A similar blog

Most every year

About this time.

But this year

Cockscomb is crazier

Than most.

Perhaps it is the cumulative effect

Of years of Cockscomb

In my garden.

Whatever the cause

It’s carpeting the front of my garden.

Which means I have to pick

Lots of it

To prevent it from going to seed.

I can’t compost the blooms

That would only mean more

Next year.

I can’t bring myself

To put it in the trash.

That goes against the composting code.

So…the last few weeks

I’ve taken to cutting big bunches

And just dropping them by

Local florists shops.

It’s kind of a reverse thing

Flowers going in

Rather than flowers going out.

Luckily I live in a small town

And know these florists well.

Sometimes the answer to the problem

Is counter intuitive

Reverse logic

Or just plain simple.

Share what you are given.
