      Faith,

      Spring creates different images in my mind.

      As a farmer, I relate spring with corn plantation.

      As a writer, I see spring as the season of regeneration.

      I loved your thoughts, deep and profound.

      Oh I loved the photos you used, meant to say so, sorry. I am over 2000 on the ones I plan to put up for everyone, just waiting on my son to help me with it. Of course I am selfish with my beauties but I tried to be generous and have a good selection, like flowers, lakes, trees, streams, geese, ducks, cows, horses, ppl...just whatever. Hope I can learn to get in and add more too as I go.

      Are you getting anywhere on writing yet? I have a novel somewhere I really wanted to finish (have one finished) sort of Janette Oak types but interesting I think; and longer. I really want to know how the last one ended, been thinking about it a couple days now, hope I get some time for it. Will take forever to even find it I am sure. lol

      Wow, you have been busy with all of those photos and plus writing. Sounds like it is time to get that novel published, which does sound very interesting. I had to dig mine up too, since it had been such a long while since I had written anything on it. Not getting too far along on it yet . . . still brainstorming and taking notes as to the middle plot. lol

      You should also having a showing of your photography in NY or somewhere!!!

      Hi drbj,

      Great to see you stopping to read! I always thought it was only the bees, but I read that actually pollen is a result of both gymnosperms (cone-bearing plants) and angiosperms (flowering plants) sexual reproduction! It was all very fascinating, as pollen is produced in male cones or pollen cones in gymnosperms while in angiosperms pollen is produced in the anthers (part of the stamen within the flower). And to boot, the plants can even get sexually transmitted diseases! Can you believe that? All this time, I thought it was just the bees. LOL

      I may have given you too much information. Obviously, bees are not the only busy ones around!!!

      Hi my dear friend, MeKenzie,

      So great to always have you to stop by with your gracious and generous comments!

      God does bless us with abundant beauty to behold and it is NEVER boring or dull, is it? hahaha

      I am so glad you enjoyed my very passionate poem of the exotic flower garden in full regeneration here at Spring!

      God has made all of His creation so glorious for His glory!

      It may be just a little obvious, but I have Spring fever. LOL

      Faith Reaper ... you little imp.. you..

      to write such beautiful words and have such erotic and sexual overtones with matching pictures to boot .. who would have knew .?

      the poem is wonderfully fantastical and gave an arousal of which i can not contain... with matching pictures .. of mother natures beauty.

      thanks for reminding me of this poem ..

      only one question ... HOW DID I MISS THIS ?

      Bless you always your friend .

      I loved this poem of yours Faith and I will definitely be sharing it elsewhere, bravo on loading it with tons of beautifully radiant complimentary images that helped to enhance your poems budding appearance and right in time for spring!

      Just lovely :) thumbs up and you know the rest.

      Hi Mike (CloudExplorer),

      I am so glad you came to witness Spring's garden in full arousal no doubt, and no wonder with those especially beautiful exotic flowers in the garden! hehe Just looking at their exquisite and unique beauty and forms, can ignite the passion of Spring in anyone!

      Yes, they surely were sexually reproducing in a frenzy here! Just look at all that pollen on the ground there.

      It is always a pleasure when you come for a visit, and I am especially glad you came for a visit here to this particular hub, being you are branching out into poetry now.

      Spring is certainly a time of renewal and rebirth! It is my favorite season. God's creation, as I stated in comments above, is certainly NOT boring!

      I appreciate the lovely comments, vote up and share.

      Hugs and love, Faith Reaper

      Good evening Faith Reaper;

      What a Hub! The choice of photography was glorious, with such a wonderfully comprehensive collection of interesting sayings, and such sweet Haiku.You are indeed a love expert :)

      I voted on the polls, but, but the Tulip vote was a difficult choice.I've heard that some yellow flowers are symbolic of a jealous love, but it still seems to detract nothing from the flowers' beauty, by any means, regardless of some sad meanings for such fine-looking foliage.

      Your florist sign was too funny! I can't play the video yet( it's not you, it's me - technical glitch ), but shall look forward to that one, and the Jonquil with the smiley faces was cute.

      Thank you so much for all of the hard work, and time you must have put into, and spent upon such a really pleasant, and educational marathon article, that is sure to put anyone in a good mood - you're so good at doing that. I'll check out some of your other poetry links in due course, as they sound like they are definitely worth a looksey.All the clicks, and I'd never sleep if I didn't share this peach of a Hub.

      With Warmest Regards,

      Romeo's Quill

      P.S I think I clicked on this link and commented by accident Faith, whilst I was reading your ' Flowers With Love As Their Meaning ' Hub, but oh boy, am I glad I did lol! Talk about being waylaid....phew! Is there a prize for gaining 100% on your quiz? :) I might just have to have a bit of a lie down now.....beautiful photography, and your poetry is so HOT!!! The last lines were quite funny! :)

      Hi Dearest Romeos Q!

      So thrilled you are here, now, in the passionate garden, obviously. LOL

      I appreciate your first comment to my other hub on here, must have clicked on this link! LOL Thank you so much for your generous comment on the haiku poetry on my hub of Flowers with love as their meaning. Yes, I love love and flowers no doubt. I will check on the video. I appreciate you so much for sharing that hub or whichever hub!

      Now, as to the comment to this hub (and I wonder about links, as they do possibly take one away from the main hub, so I do hope you voted there, etc. before clicking on this hub), well, as for as the prize for the 100% on the quiz is just knowing you are brilliant is enough : )

      LOL, yes, this one here was quite the garden full of passion and then some with all of these "Passion" flowers in full bloom and all. I am glad you enjoyed this piece here so much.

      I needed a smile on my face this evening, and now I have one from your lovely visit to my hubs.

      I have been off-line for a bit here lately due to life, so trying my best to get caught back up. I do so need to visit your side of HP Town to see what you have been writing and I know it is always so very beautiful and amazing.

      Hugs and love, Faith Reaper
