March brings the awakening from long months of winter slumber that
heralds the welcome return of spring,
just visible about lustreless resting grass, vibrant sunshine yellow crocus,
what glorious colour they bring.
A country walled garden with mature climbing, rambling and shrub roses
in ruby red, rich cream and white,
some with tightly closed buds, others in full bloom with their pure fragrance
floating on a summer’s eves twilight.
The delicate lemon flowers and rich green leaves of native woodland
primroses line the curving garden path,
cream, pink and Wedgewood blue hyacinths boldly bloom with a delicate
perfume under a stone bird bath.
The striking colour of flowering delphiniums with towering luxuriant
spikes of amethyst and royal blue,
the garden’s colours in flux, changing from bright to shadowed pastel
as transient sun and clouds pass through.
Tall yellow hollyhocks sway in imperceptible light wind, underneath are
wild tissue paper poppies in scarlet red,
the colourful blooms of begonias, antirrhinums, petunias and tri-coloured
pansies embellish a summer flowerbed.
The fluttering ephemeral dance of butterflies feeding on sweet golden nectar
hidden in powder white buddleia fronds,
reminiscent of a Monet painting, white and blush pink waterlilies float
serenely on a dark reflective garden pond.
The orange calendula’s layers of daisy-like petals slowly curl and close
as sunlight and heat disappear from the day,
ready to unfurl and welcome the warmth and light of the following
morning’s luminous sun’s rays.
The overnight transformation of the garden by a smooth pristine blanket
of frozen crystalline snow,
offers mysterious camouflaged shapes and undulating shadows with
a fleeting ethereal glow.
A windy day decorates the lawn with a carpet of burnished amber and
mustard fallen autumnal leaves,
the welcome sunshine and unseasonal warmth of a late October Indian
summer, a temporary winter reprieve.
Whether a city balcony or rambling cottage garden, immaculate or
wild, all that you loved so dear,
when I look out of a window at a flower garden in bloom,
this brings you ever closer, brings you ever near.
