March brings the awakening from long months of winter slumber that 
 announces the welcome return of spring,
just visible above lustreless resting grass, vibrant sunshine yellow crocus,
what radiant colour they bring.

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

The silent overnight transformation of the garden by a smooth pristine 
blanket of frozen crystalline snow,
creating mysterious camouflaged shapes and undulating shadows
with a fleeting ethereal glow.

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.

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 boughs, 
 perfect for a traditional Christmas Day.

Tall yellow hollyhocks sway in imperceptible light wind, underneath are
wild tissue paper poppies in scarlet red,
the colourful blooms of begonia, antirrhinums, petunias and tri-coloured
pansies embellish a summer flowerbed.

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 eve twilight.

A windy day embellishes 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 opportune temporary winter reprieve.

The rare quintessential summer’s day with a cornflower blue sky, transient
white cumulus clouds passing high,
at night, the garden lit by a canopy of glittering star constellations in an
indigo black velvet sky.

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