trees have grown
and summer is here
the view where I read
is more green than sky

perennial gardens
grow well with rain
and sun and time

as if always this way
a summer day

on my study wall
June days going by

all we could not know
when we bought the calendar
and how life would change

yet gardens grow
birds sing
and soon it will
be summer here

poem and photo

at the kitchen table

healthy food
and conversation
about the news
and gardens

then we each work
on other things



Mandevilla Plant was from The Home Depot in Kohler, Wisconsin.

a deer discovers
the hosta

new leaves
on the birch tree
and on the branch
with no leaves
a robin

on the branch
with no leaves
sun and shadows

reading poetry
my own words

early May

early May
robin visits
the cedar tree

warm Saturday
in early May
windows open
