Poppy petals tumbling…


My cottage garden glows

With ragged pink blush

Poppies.

Summer winds blowing,

Tumbling petals flowing

Through a sea of leaves;

Frilly foxgloves enticing bees.

Hooting Hollyhocks

Hollyhocks hoot
Loudly, as they
Shoot their stocky
Limbs,
High into the sky.
Large frilly bells,
Like lemon meringue,
Heavenly sherbet high!

Dazzling dahlias

Autumnal showers
Drench;
Dazzling dahlias fence,
Flouncing their fripperies.

Weekly photo challenge: The world through your eyes


Weekly photo challenge- a story captured in a frame, ‘the photographer’s eye’Nurturing narrative

image

Nurturing the gardens,
Tending to shoots
And vines.
Whiling away time,
She listens to
Nature’s narrative,
Finding it gently curative.
Feeding and watering,
Meditatively, patiently.
She enjoys the shower
Of summer raindrops,
Refreshingly restorative
And the company of bees,
Thrumming, diving
Into friendly foxgloves.
Curious robins
Play hide and seek,
Sparrows wait for a treat.
Undisturbed the gardener
Weeds her needs and
Sighs with satisfaction
Before retiring for
The night.
