A White Garden

White flowers against green: the picture of serenity.

I used to dream of having a garden bed in just those colours.

Never happened.

But between June and July, you’ll find several patches in our garden.

Green and white Hosta in several places…

And Hydrangea everywhere….

Now, to get them all together in one place at one time and I’d have … well, not exactly Sissinghurst … but for me, the perfect white and green garden!

I hope you are enjoying your summer.

Ah, Well…

I love this man

I really do

For many, many reasons

*

And he’s been here

Right by my side

Through many different seasons

But tell me now

When I show you

This nice bouquet of flowers

*

Would you not say:

“Oh Cynthia, wow

You’ve got such lovely powers!”

And so I did

Show him my craft

Expecting him to praise me

*

Such praise that makes

Me burst in smiles

And makes my pulse go crazy

But this is what

That good man said

Believe me, it’s no fable:

*

“Is that the old

White chenille spread

You put out on the table?
