Garden Blogger's Muse Day: August 1
Here goes...my first attempt at playing in the Garden Blogger's Muse Day festivities. I'll enjoy reading other postings more, though.
Daylily days and frogsong nights
Heat and fog play
The best looking plants seem to be the weeds
As hungry insects gnaw on once-perfect leaves and flowers
And of course now come the visitors!
Little do they know that a garden writer’s garden
Is only perfect if her name is Martha.
Still, there's a little 'Green Envy' to enjoy...
Deadlines can give way to hammock swinging and sense-restoring
As we listen, look, smell, touch and taste the garden’s joys
A storm cloud trembles on the horizon, to remind us
We’re half past summer, quarter to autumn
No matter what the almanac says.
