Grow Write Guild #7: In Bloom


Grow Write Guild Prompt #7: Write about one plant that is currently in bloom.

Use the following questions and strategies to help spark different approaches to this prompt. Feel free to ignore this if you don’t need it.

    Further Notes & Questions:

  • Go outside and look at your garden right now. What is in bloom? Choose one plant and write about it.
  • You don’t have to choose a bloom that you like. For something different, try writing about a flower that you don’t like.
  • Don’t feel compelled to teach us anything if you don’t want to. Simply write about your experiences with that plant.
  • From where did you get the plant?
  • How does the colour of the flower make you feel?
  • Take a photograph or draw a picture to accompany your post.

  1. Summer rains are upon us here in Florida. The plant I’m thrilled to find blooming at last is Purple Zinnia. I started these from seed back in April and was ever so careful with their tranplanting and locating them in the garden. The biggest payoff was finding an orange winged butterfly resting upon the bloom. The contrast of colors would have made a nice photo but I wasn’t camera ready and now it’s raining.(Again!)
