What grows in this garden “O” mine?
Tulips, Daffodils, sprigs of thyme,
Hollyhocks, scented stock, colors of green,
Plants, flowers, annually seen,
leaves with droplets of rain weighed down
huge tree trunks with roots of brown
moths fluttering in the bright moonlight
bats asleep in caves all night.
Bee’s and butterflies hovering around.
Oblivious to humanity and every sound,
What beasts do pray in this forest of fun?
When darkness falls and the moon is bright?
Badgers, foxes, cats and mice.
Wander the vastness,seeking the light,
Plundering, raking, searching around,
looking for scraps before calling it a night,
In the morning light the flowers open wide.
The bee’s all buzz, in the active hive,
The garden so sweet in the heat of the day,
With the cloudless Blue sky, and the hottest sun ray,
It’s all a part of a wondrous sight,
natures finest, a botanical delight.

With all the bad weather we have had I thought we should get a break and a peek at what is to come in the Summer, heat, colour and sweet smells, mmm when I lived in Edinburgh I had a lovely Garden but where I live now it doesn't have one, but I can still enjoy the lovely gardens around me.

Do YOU like Gardening? whats your favourite flower? or shrub? I like sweet william hehe.

  15. I would love for you to share. Life is not always happy and it is great for people to learn about something they my not know about. Just put your name and put something about it being sad. Last week I had someone post about a murder in their family. That is life and it is not happy at times but it happens. So please stop by and share. Thanks.. Have a great weekend.

  16. Oh thanks for asking me before you posted it. That means a lot to me and shows me what a great friend and person you really are. Thanks..

  17. Oh, William, I couldn’t pick my favorite line I loved this poem in its entirety!!!

    Peonies and Lilacs are my favorite flowers, Lilacs for their sweet perfume and Peonies because of humor. Children seem to be a bit taken by the name and always someone asks or makes the attempt to pee on these…
