TULIPS 2watermarked
They grace my table sweetly as they stand so straight and tall

And then with time they curtsey and they take a humble fall…

(From the poem ‘Tulips’ by: Linda Hogeland)

‘Nothing Gold Can Stay’

fallhpotowithpaintframedandwatermarkedNature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

(By:Robert Frost)

A Garden’s Medley

“The moment one gives close attention to anything,
even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious,
awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself.”
– Henry Miller

Oh for the sound
Of deafening stillness,
Resounding so
Of peace and calm,
A blissful pleasure
Of echoing silence – – -

(From the poem- The Sound of Silence ~ A Blissful Pleasure ~By: Jean-Jacques Fournier)

–A Quiet Moment–

—Just a whisper of the wind in the cool air,
While walking the country side, so fair,
As winds blew leaves of silver and gold—
