Blogging is a curious adventure.
Some weeks ideas pop into my mind
Like this one
The mind is a void.
Not an idea at all.
So with the clock ticking away
On this Sunday evening.
I simply went into the garden
Breezy evening that it is
And clicked away.
Like any garden stroll
We’ll just do a little review
Of what’s blooming.
And ask a few questions
That popped into my mind.
The roses continue to bloom
And thrill my soul.
The staples in my garden
Are Katy Road Pink
And Belinda’s Dream.
But this week
Some new and old friends
Have been making me smile.
In my quest to add yellow roses
Sorry Daddy (he disliked yellow roses)
Julia Child is happily blooming away.
Then two that I dug and brought
From my old garden
Are the best they have ever been.
If only I knew their name.
It’s poppy season here.
And the rosy red ones that dot my garden
Remind me of my neighbor Patti
And the fun we had gardening
Back and forth over the fence
That attempted to divide our yards.
I can’t look at a poppy or a lady bug
Without smiling and remembering Patti.
Now for the questions
What’s the deal with the Redbud trees?
The are loaded
No, over loaded with seed pods.
So much so that the branches are
Hanging even lower than usual.
It seems to be a good year for seed pods
Not only Redbuds
But the Silver Leaf Maple has produced
Enough “helicopters” to replant
The southern plains.
So…did you ever wonder
Why columbine has these funny little
Spear like things coming off
The back of the bloom?
I’m not sure I really want to know the answer
To my questions.
I love the mystery.
And of life.
