Garden Graces

Tiny yellow flowers blooming in garden

Cheerful tiny blooms

A scattering of yellow

Birds plant flower seeds

Haiku

Not sure how these pretty little yellow blooms came to be here in my garden, as I didn’t plant them, perhaps the birds carried some seeds and dropped them here. I am not sure if they are weeds or flowers, but I am enjoying the sight of them as they add a bit of color to my otherwise non blooming garden area right now.

Rosa Rosaceae

Rose bloom in colors of peach, yellow and pink

I think that I shall

Never see

Any one so lovely

Syllable Lune

On my walk this evening I saw this beautiful rose in bloom in a yard I was passing by. It seemed to be glowing in the evening sunlight. I could not just pass it by without taking a photo. I just love its multi colors. Such beauty needs to be remembered!

Brightness by the Brook

Yellow Flowers

Curious encounter

Of yellow bursts of color

Blooming near the creek

Haiku

I recently came upon these big yellow blooms as I was walking near a small creek. They were just scattered about on the creek’s bank. I am not sure what they are, probably some kind of a lily. They sure brightened up my morning walk!

(If any of you know what they are please let me know in the comment section. Thanks)

Autumn’s Arrival

Autumn Woman
No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace
As I have seen in one autumnal face.
~John Donne

Autumn arrived yesterday all aglow
Dressed in red, orange, brown and yellow

A pallet of color she held in her hand
and she used it to change the scape of my land.

A bounty of fruit she left in her wake
the abundance of which I could freely take

Color so vibrant brought my senses alive
Autumn! I am so glad you chose to arrive!

A Morning Treasure

Marigolds
Marigolds


Upon taking a morning walk in May,

a bright splash of color enters my day.

It’s  Marigolds growing in a patch,
their colors so vivid, nothing can match
the splendor the sunshine brings to each bloom.

I pause so my eyes can consume
the the sea of colors, orange, yellow, scarlet and gold!
What a morning treasure–a sight to behold!
