A Good Home, Garden Humour, Spring, Weather

Spring?

The biggest, fattest snowflakes (snow dollops?) of the season arrived yesterday, like cold water in the face of Spring.

I’m no poet, but these verses are meant to make you smile:

Reminders of Springs Past

 

Birdhouse by Jean Long

I’ve always wondered what this bird is saying — atop one of Jean Long’s clever bird feeder creations. (“Time for more food!”)

I love the purple globes of giant Allium.

The Weigela is so soaked, its branches are almost touching the ground.

And, below, the gorgeous purple-blue pansy.

Happy Spring, everyone. We’ve had rain, grey skies, and the stream out back has turned into a rushing river. But I’ll take it: Welcome, Spring!

Autumn Here, Spring There

It’s Springtime now Down Under

While we here are right in the Fall

Hard to believe it’s the same Earth

It barely makes sense at all.

I wonder how folks in the old days

Reacted to this bit of news

That Christmas could be in the summer

Did they think it was some kind of ruse?

Oh – look what I wrote up above there!

A captive of my point of view

Though for folks in the lands Down Under

This cannot be anything new.

So let’s start this poem all over

Let’s turn it upside on its head

And now, it is Fall Over Yonder

But here it’s the time to plant beds.

In Praise of Trees

Blog Photo - Apple Tree and others

The apple blossoms soon will bloom

The lilac fragrance fill my room

Leaf buds will open on large trees

Gardeners will fall upon their knees


Blog Photo - Tree and Shady Garden

Bring forth your green, oh maple grand

Welcome the spring across the land

Whisper to me through rustling leaf

And I shall sigh with great relief

Blog Photo - Trees Woman hugs tree

Bring back your shelter, copper beech

With arms that dare to heaven reach

Bring back your green leaves, walnut friend

And cleanse the air, our bodies mend

Blog Photo - Ebor House back lawn

Give us your shade, oh mighty beings

Cover our spaces with your wings

Shade so the grass becomes a bed

Shade for the place where lies our dead

Blog Photo - Trees and Memorial Stone

Shade for the robin, perched on limb

Nest for the bugs that pester him

Blog Photo - Bird Scratches self For trees are gifts to creatures all

From those who walk to those who crawl.

Dedicated to all my blogger friends.
