A Garden Is a Work of Art

a garden is a work of art conceived with gloved, wrinkled hands a home for fragrant specimens for mists, for rain, for brilliant sun yet when the weather turns, so do blooms from rich perfumes to withered tombs so clasp tight my hand, retreat indoors to dream of sun-splashed greener shores

It is funny how the weather has such an influence on our gardens and us as a whole. You have got me thinking how true this is Sir Gershon...

Each garden is a work of art.... giving endless delight. That's why still I work in my garden with wrinkled hands. Beautifully written.

Every once in a while, I pen something resembling real poetry. Thanks, John. :) gw
