It has been a couple of weeks since I finishedit’s the little things challenge. I haven’t posted since then and I miss this space. The summer is going by fast, it’s almost midsummer, and I’m enjoying every bit of it. My garden is gorgeous, with many flowers and vegetables.
We have lots of cucumbers and our first zucchini, of the season, was harvested this weekend. The tomatoes are coming along.
The queen of my garden right now is the hydrangea bush, just gorgeous. And it’s a perfect subject for my macro lens.
Hope you are enjoying the summer!
A garden is a grand teacher. It teaches patience and careful watchfulness; it teaches industry and thrift; above all it teaches entire trust.
the joy of gardening. i know it’s not easy to start, to work with the soil, to add the tiny seeds, watering and all the waiting. this process started on the spring, and now almost at the end of the summer i have been harvesting delicious cucumbers and tomatoes. i have peppers too, but they are still growing. the art of gardening has taught me many things, as to have more patience, to trust the process, to be more grateful… i’ve been gardening for many years and each year seems that it’s the first year, always something new to learn and appreciate.
and below is my Etheree for Tanka Tuesday, this week poet’s choice.
on earth magic
the deep need for a change
breathing in and breathing out
a few droplets of lavender
on my pillow under the bright moon
craving the energy for acceptance
