Fennel

By John I. Blair

Fennel is the finest herb
To plant I think.

Its leaves feed caterpillars
That grow to gorgeous butterflies.

Its flowers exude sweet nectar
For hummingbirds and bees.

And when the flowers wilt
Chickadees gulp the ripe seeds.

With all that going on
The fact itís also beautiful
Seems almost redundant.
