Look closely and see what is often overlooked…
Three simple eyes that guide a bee to its nest
Feet with suction cups that allow security when holding tightly to a leaf
A discarded skin that nourishes the body
A covering that allows flight
Hundreds of individual petals that make up a whole
Sweeping vistas may be astounding but let us never ignore the beauty in the often overlooked
AS A GARDEN AGES – LIFE INCREASES
WHAT BEGAN AS A FEW PLANTS HAS TRANSFORMED INTO AN OASIS
A REFUGE FOR ALL CREATURES GREAT AND SMALL
TAKE A MOMENT, LOOK CLOSELY AT A FLOWER, LOOK TO THE TREES …
In a world where we’ve already envisioned The Matrix and computer code is reality
All I can do is smile when confronted with naturally occurring creations
What is a garden? The free dictionary defines it as:
1. A plot of land used for the cultivation of flowers, vegetables, herbs, or fruit
To a gardener it is much more. It is a his/herstory of one’s life. Flowers and trees added to canvas.
Others moved and replanted in new portraits.
Memories salvaged from farmsteads, cemeteries and family homes.
Within the layers of petals and leaves are ghosts of those who have passed and dreams of those to come . . .
Yet another raindrop,
Yet another leaf,
Yet another deluge
Yet another tendril
Yet another view
If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I find rain beautiful!
