SPIKED SPEEDWELL

Pink and blue spikes
in the garden,
called Spiked Speedwell.

Native Americans used this flowering herb
as a medicinal tea,
to relieve bronchial congestion,
asthma and allergies.

(I guess it worked fast,
earning its common name, Speedwell.)

Its pink and blue spikes
add a splash of color
in the summer garden.
