My Version Of The Twelve Days Of Christmas ... In Flowers

             You probably know the song ... on the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me ... a Partridge in a Pear Tree.  
This ... is a Partridge. Looks kind of like a pheasant to me. Whatever. Anyway, it is not exactly what I would want on the First Day Of Christmas  ... as well as the next 11 days following Christmas. Nor do I want or need Calling Doves, French Hens, etc. My dear hubby, Bill, knows the way to my heart ... he knows I love flowers! So, I dedicate this blog post to  him, my True Love. This is my version of The Twelve Days of Christmas ... In Flowers!

On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me ...
         a pretty, frilly pink Pe-on-y.

         On the second day of Christmas my true love gave to me ...
two yellow Roses ...
and a second lovely pink Pe-on-y.

       On the third day of Christmas my true love gave to me ...
three white Daisies
   two yellow Roses
     and my favorite flower ... another pink Pe-on-y.

   On the fourth day of Christmas my true love gave to me ...
     four lavendar Lilacs
       three white Daisies, two yellow Roses

        On the sixth Day of Christmas my true love gave to me ...
