I’ve been in the garden today

DSC_0815
Pardon me there’s no lunch made.
I thought I’d be out only a minute.
But there were birds singing in the trees,
A mother wren making a nest,
A squirrel stealing Osage oranges.
Winter is gone and weeds are popping up everywhere.
I’m sorry there was no lunch made.
I thought to pull a  few weeds from between the stepping stones,
then a bramble of briers from the fence,
some decayed leaves from the flower beds.
I thought it would take just a few more minutes.
Then  I imagined the chimes ringing in time to the bird songs,
mother bird telling her babies to stay quiet,
the squirrel shooing me along.
There was no lunch and it’s getting late.
But I will only be here a few more minutes,
I think.     DSC_0805

  2. I know the feeling! You think you will only be a minute in the garden but that turns into hours! :)

  3. Oh Jeannie - beautiful!!! I can't wait until the frost is all gone here to get some color in the yard. It's late in coming (and Easter was early) but we usually at least see crocuses blooming by now. But it's so true, you think you'll do just one thing out there... and then suddenly you notice a bit of sunburn coming on. ;)

  4. I am like you, I get into the garden and I can spend hours. And, the symphony of the birds is magical.

  6. Oh my, this post could have been written by me. Although I would not have said it so poeticly. I often let time get away from me when I'm in the garden. I thin, I'll just do this and then quit. Then I move onto another 'just do this then I'll quit'. lol! Love your photos and the vanilla bottle for a vase is pure beauty. Thanks so much for sharing your lovely garden with Share Your Cup.
    hugs,
    Jann

    1. Whoo hoo! How exciting! Thank you bunches, wish I could walk over with a vanilla bottle of flowers and have coffee. Guess I'll just settle for a blog read while drinking my coffee.
