Sea holly

member of the carrot family
similar seeds
you wouldn't know it to see it at first
but maybe on closer inspection
frilly spiky foliage
very Dr Suess

a cluster booming
the colour of JJ's spheres
violet candies
my high school grad dress

nearly twenty years and a few transplants
would love to snip a sprig or two but daunted by hovering wasps
loving the sea holly
they love it too
one big old blooming nest of love
