Writing about border in bloom (8)

I believe the answer is:

primrose

Here is my best explanation:

'bloom' is the definition.

'writing about border' is the wordplay.
'writing' becomes 'prose' (I've seen this in other clues).
'about' indicates putting letters inside.
'border' becomes 'rim' (I've seen this before).
'prose' going around 'rim' is 'PRIMROSE'.

'in' acts as a link.
