A Flower Garden

 The garden awakes from it’s winter slumber with welcome colour,
fragrance and sound,
 young leaves unfurling on mature oak tree boughs and an occasional
bumblebee to be found,
a country walled garden with climbing, rambling and shrub roses in
 ruby red, cream and white,
some with tight buds, others in full bloom with pure fragrance floating
  on a summer’s eves twilight.

The lemon flowers and rich green leaves of woodland primroses line 
  the curving garden path,
cream and wedgewood blue hyacinths bloom with a delicate perfume
 under a stone bird bath,
the striking colour of flowering delphiniums with luxuriant spikes of 
  amethyst and royal blue,
the garden’s colours changing from bright to shadowed pastel as sun
      and clouds pass through.

Tall yellow hollyhocks sway in light wind, underneath are tissue  
paper poppies in scarlet red,
the luxurious blooms of begonias, antirrhinums, petunias and pansies 
 in a colourful summer flowerbed,
the fluttering dance of admiral and peacock butterflies feeding on
 powder white buddleia fronds,
reminiscent of Monet, white and blush pink waterlilies float serenely 
  on a dark reflective garden pond.

A glorious late flowering fushia bush with it’s profusion of pendant 
 pink and white bells,
an orange calendula unfurls petals to early morning sunshine, a 
  beautiful day it foretells,
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.

Beloved Mother Jane Farthing 1929 -2017
