Bossler’s Christmas Tree Farm is here in Oostburg. I went to the Home Depot in Kohler for new pots and organic soil for the geraniums. Now they can live inside for a time.

Lovely. Hard to believe that time is here. Hugs, Margie
Hi Margie, Thank you and how true! Karl and I repotted the geraniums today, and they look happy in the sunroom.
Hi. I like the ‘kale for sale’… the next stanza says to me that both you and the kale are wearing the sweater.. the photo shows me that the kale looks like knitting… nice poem. Jane
Thank you, Jane. Lovely to read how the stanzas work together from your viewpoint. I’ve read haiku and tanka for many years, and now simply like to write in my own way, to record what I see, hopefully honoring various sources of inspiration.
“frost glitters on the fields” – enjoyed your cheerful poetry about the various activities that come along with the change in seasons…
Thank you, Barbara. The frost on the fields was an unexpected gift that day.
You have a lovely blog, thanks for visiting mine. I like your Christmas cactus gravatar. I had one for years, but it never bloomed until I left it with my mom when I moved out of state. She was as surprised as I, to find it absolutely inundated with red blossoms that year. I’m glad God gave her that gift.
Dear Patti, Thank you. I bought the Christmas cactus last year, and it didn’t bloom well for the holidays. But then it bloomed later on, when Karl took that photo. Then we transplanted it into a larger pot, and now it is just beginning to form new flowers once again. Lovely story about your mom.
Wonderful imagery, Ellen. The first frost was around a week ago here; the slow but majestic changing of the seasons marches on.
Hi Tracy and thank you. “…the slow but majestic changing of the seasons…” So true.
Ellen, you have a very interesting blog; I’ve enjoyed visiting, seeing some of your beautiful photos, and soaking in some of your poetry. I’ve decided to follow your blog, and I look forward to coming back to see and read more. Thanks for “liking” my Stages of Cotton so that I could come here and find you! God bless! =)
Thank you so much and you are welcome! I look forward to visiting again. May God bless you too.
