the day is blue and gold,

flowers that were soaked and forlorn

now sparkle and glow…

Morning Glory

by Charmed Chaos

Path in blooming garden

Morning Glory

-Linda Lee Lyberg

Ambling through this splendid morning
With the cool hint of Fall in the air
The earth so colorful with flowers adorning
A stone path I stroll without care.

This simple life without borders
A thriving world without hate.

With my heart in my hand

Abundance

by Jem Croucher

There’s an abundance in my border
and it’s shouting loud at me
It’s telling me of summer
and it’s wonderful to see

It has orange there and yellow
reflective of the sun
And it greets me every morning
as each new day’s begun

Greenhouse

by Jem Croucher

I have a little greenhouse
in a lovely sunny spot
It’s covered in green plastic
and inside it’s pretty hot

At present I am growing
several things from seed
Some courgettes and some lettuce
and some parsnips that we need

Succulent

by Jem Croucher

It’s been growing in some housebricks
on a pot outside our door
for quite some months, innocuous
Not sure what it was for
But just this week quite suddenly
It’s come into it’s own
As several tall flowers have
spectacularly grown

Our little garden

by Jem Croucher

I love our little garden
and the space we have out here
It’s lovely in the summer
and at other times of year
And yes, it’s on the small side
but that’s the way it is
So we’re not that bothered by it
as there’s nothing here remiss

On my day of birth I saw
Some flowers in the garden
Which deserve (at least) encore

Many Happy Returns

by Jem Croucher

Back when it was purchased
with its buds not yet in bloom
I thought I’d save a picture
of it for the first of June
And now that day has come
and the summertime is here
I’m really pleased I waited
as its beauty is now clear

My peaceful seat

by Jem Croucher

I’ve a seat in my garden
where I can sit in the sun
as it sets in the West
when the daytime is done
It’s just the birdsong and me
and the soft evening light
An admirable setting
to sit here and write

Too cold in the winter

by Jem Croucher

imgp1152

Neglected in winter
gets quite overgrown
Too cold to sit out there
grass stays unmown
Trees shed their leaves
and they fall to the ground
and because I’m not out there
they just lie around

Secret Places

by Jem Croucher

20161111_124709

It’s hidden by the railway line
unkempt for many years
and if the Signalman could see it now
he’s be reduced to tears
Once known as Railway Gardens
when the signal box was there
Nestled just behind the sign
that warned us “Trains – beware”

Caterpillar

by Jem Croucher

20160908_123933

A caterpillar came a-crawling
through my garden yesterday
So I captured him on video
as he went upon his way
He’ll turn into a Hawk Moth
I am reliably informed
but as they’re simply massive
I’m glad I’ve been forewarned

Iron, Undress and Grow in the Garden With Me

by A. Marie

Iron of dress, without meadowsweet tenderness,
Give up your ghost to me now, and we shall all bow down weeping.

Close to the creeping, I secure my hat,
Pick up my boots and walk
To the lavender-times, when I lived by my nose,
When I touched my crown into each rose and
Loved red.

The sun, some flowers and a smile

by Jem Croucher

IMGP0333IMGP0342

Nasturtiums and Geraniums
in the bright sunshine
Taking pictures of them out there
because all of these are mine
Oranges and yellows
offset by splash of pink
All looking pretty lovely
and splendid, don’t you think?
