Pretty, Pretty Portulaca
 

 
My favorite of all flowers is the Portulaca
Known by another name as well, moss rose
I love it because it's strong and a survivor
And I have no green thumb, heaven knows

Succulent, green leaves taste a bit lemony
Oh yes, you can eat them, yep, I'm tellin ya
Some come in white, pink and peach varieties
Flowers pretty as a picture, radiant and perky
Sunny warm reds, oranges, yellows, magentas

To think that some people have called it a weed
That's quite a bum rap it's been given in the past
Just give it a chance, I've no doubt you'll be pleased
And it's an annual to boot, so it will last and last

It's loves the sun, doesn't care about the soil
It can surprise you by popping up from your lawn
It will make you appreciate just how good God is
Blooming ever faithful each morning at dawn
