I love my garden at this time of year
It is really quite idyllic
Can’t exactly tell you why
as there’s nothing quite specific

But it’s a lot about the colour
and the lushness that’s out here
in the rain or in the sunshine
as it always brings good cheer

It’s a lot about the fragrance
Honeysuckle on the breeze
and the petrichor from summer rain
just dripping from the leaves

And it’s all about the peacefulness
and how it makes me feel
For my garden is my haven
with the power to calm and heal

  3. The pleasure of a garden has a settling effect on me… An English garden transforms me into a Hummingbird. so I might enjoy all that are blooming.
