garden haiku

time for lunch
cardinals by a pumpkin
in the garden

We bought pumpkins last year, and also received two as a gift. I loved the orange color as the gardens faded. Now they are in the snow, along with perennials that will grow again.

Gardens rest

New Year’s Eve morning
gardens are happy
to be covered with snow

The gardens rest, and grateful for plants and flowers this year.

This is another beautiful photo by Karl from yesterday.

Poems from my archives, inspired by bleeding hearts:

old photos
on my desk —
bleeding hearts in bloom

AUTUMN GRACE

leaves of bleeding hearts
now gold
so do broken hearts mend
so does grief heal
Autumn grace
