Karl bought an Easter Lily on sale at Mentink’s Market Piggly Wiggy.  I took the photos today.

Garden Journal Gallery – August 2015

four blooms
on the Easter lily
in a cool August garden
one for each season?
hope all year

The first gallery for August features the Easter Lily we bought at a store one year.  I had forgotten that Karl planted it in the garden, after the plant bloomed in the house; and so did not realize at first what I was seeing, when it began to grow again this summer.  What a gift.

July 2015 – third gallery

wind through fields of corn
and wildflowers by the roads

driving past a tree farm
I remember when these trees
were small

The first picture is an Easter lily from a store that Karl planted in the garden one year.  Wildflowers grew, peonies and roses bloomed.

The daylilies and ferns offered beautiful photos as well.

last week in July
and wildflowers
I’ve loved for decades
bloom . . .

summer arrives late
and leaves early here
yet I am older now and

I know that
trying too hard
does not keep
anything close

unless I can trust
and leave all in
His hands
