plants and flowers
through the seasons
how welcome the snowdrops
in Spring – daffodils, tulips
Summer in our yard
offers daylilies, hosta, goldenrod
hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees
and asters – how wonderful
to grow so well when so much
is past for the year
Just some thoughts today, that I hope to write about again. We bought chrysanthemums at Walmart in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. And saw coneflowers and asters too. Grateful today.
