Flowers: Trumpet vine

The trumpet vine or trumpet creeper (Campsis radicans), also known as "cow itch vine" and (in horticulture) as "hummingbird vine", is a large and vigorous woody vine of the family Bignoniaceae, notable for its showy trumpet-shaped flowers. It is native to woodlands and riverbanks of the southeastern United States, but is a popular garden perennial plant across much of the US and southern Canada, as some cultivars are hardy to as low as -30°F/-34°C.

I knocked at your door they said you were not in,
You won't be back
The flowers are blooming in your garden for you to appreciate
but you're not there ha ha ha
I knocked at your door they said you were not in,
You won't be back
If you won't come back to appreciate the beautiful flowers there may no longer bloom for you anymore
Everybody loves beautiful flowers
When everybody loves each other the world is full of love and compassion
It's all up to you now and in your hand
Waste no time grasp it fast…Ah..

The original Chinese version: 敲敲門你在不在 有人說你沒回來
滿園花兒為你開 你為什麼不來採 哈哈哈
敲敲門你在不在 有人說你沒回來
要是你還不來採 啊花兒不再為你開
美麗的花朵人人愛 世界充滿了情和愛
把不把握就在你自己 需要它就快回來 啊
