I think when next I take a trip.
Outside my land.
I'd like to see an island strip.
Madeira is so lovely.
Travel and see,
an amazing shrub of beauty
With purple flowers in a cone;
I find this grand.
Yet some feel it is over-grown.
Australia thinks it's just a weed.
Perish the thought.
A viewpoint I shall not concede.
It's loved by every bird and bee,
Adored and loved, of course, by me.
Thank you Rachel for the use of your photo.
