In My Backyard

I planted daffodils these show us the beautiful color of the sun.
I had lilies near a bush so many colors not just one.
The daffodils and lilies both of them are yellow.
Pink lilies make my heart mellow.
Pink and yellow gives me thirst for lemonade,
The colors of this drink that is made,

When the summer heat is felt within.
Orange lilies have brown freckles like the ones that I get on my skin
They have the same colors as a tiger.
I admire the pure white lilies because I see them at Easter.
The crocus will stay purple even after the frost.
There are so many lilies that I like the most.
