I have a dream of.....

Meandering paths and water lillies
Topiary hedges and mazes of green
Splashes of color across the lawn
Succulent fruits all for the picking

Bleeding hearts, buttercups
Elephant ears, paperwhites
Canna, easter, and daylillies
Caladiums and flowering grasses

Perfect meter, perfect rhyme
Balanced into beautiful blossoms
Ressurection of perrenials
Springtime treasures and autumns follies

    "Ressurection of perrenials" This reminds me of the root of love that is in the heart waiting to be resurrected Sara. I've heard of the book "Shack" I may find it and read it. Thanks or comment. Agape, Moses

    Dream on baby..Deer probably would not eat the Elephant Ears for I think they are poison...They won't eat the Daffodils, Jonquils, Paper Whites, Canna. Caladium and Azeala..They like the Easter Lilies and daylilies some..Caladium have to be dug up every year and replanted..Great poem written using the garden dream and desire to write beautiful poetry..Mom..Thanks for stopping ...I am sure that Haiku is not correctly written but it just came to me so I posted it..

    Get Caleb and Wayne to come down and get some free things to transplant before they start putting out very much and the ground is wet enough to dug them up..I need to let you get some for the trees are shading mine too much now and I need to rework my beds anyway..Mom
