MarchMake Magic: Biological Mutualism
Every day, a photograph, a poem.
I love the ONE peony that pops up each spring and takes weeks to grow the bud, so tightly wrapped with ants crawling around to sip up the nectar and chase away any other harmful insects before one day that bud slowly begins the unwrapping to be this big, bold, pink beauty of a flower to bless the day.

Magic in the Mutual
Small buds grow, tightly boundSheri Edwards
With sepal nectar dripping down
As ants its sweetness sips a bit
And defends from others’ harmful grip
A thanks to peony as it grows
Nature living mutual.
