A Flower Garden

After the long months of winter slumber, snowdrops and 
chartreuse leaves announce the welcome return of spring,
just visible above resting grass, the petite sunshine yellow 
flowers of crocuses, what radiant colour they bring.

Fluted ephemeral wings alighting on aromatic flowering 
lavender bushes, a gossamer topaz blue butterfly,
sharing the cone shaped flowers with the hum of variegated
 bees, nectar’s sweet golden dust in plentiful supply. 

The silent overnight transformation of the garden by a 
smooth pristine dusting of crystalline white snow,
creating mysterious camouflaged shapes and undulating 
indigo shadows with a luminous ethereal glow.

Hanging upside down, industrious adult blue tits diligently 
search for small spiders under a wooden window ledge,
the rich violet star shaped flowers and dark glossy leaves 
of periwinkle nestled under a mature holly hedge.

Interwoven with honeysuckle in a decorative arch, winter 
jasmine’s yellow flowers brighten a morn of misty grey,
glossy scarlet red berries abound on prickly evergreen 
holly perfect for a traditional Christmas Day.

A pastel yellow hollyhock blooms in a colourful cottage 
garden standing sentinel at a five bar gate,
 elegant, tall and graceful, swaying slightly in imperceptible
summer wind, so patiently it waits.

Whether pruning, planting, weeding or watching from a
Christmas window with amiable good cheer,
the garden’s constantly changing light, flowers and wildlife
 always delight, whatever the time of year.
