Everywhere I look
their is beauty,
swarms of mosquito's
and more work then I can do.
Long sleeve blouse,
cap that has visor and something to cover the neck,
hopeful thoughts that I did not get bitten.
More rain due, grass and weeds a foot high.
Trees are heavy with huge leaves on branches and need to be trimmed.
Emptied bird baths of standing water and gutters need to be cleaned.
I need some help
or really need to remember that my original
thoughts was simplicity and nature surrounding
this cottage as this was created.
I am reminded that I have been grooming too much.
But really want as someone pulls down the gravel drive
for them to view my dwelling. At this rate of growth
I will be almost invisible.
Wheat beginning to turn slightly golden
because they are so huge and wet from the rain
is what I hoped for 3 years ago
as I planted this simple country garden.
I already know
the daylillies will be spectacular.
Planned on taking a break from the computer
but there is too much beauty
for me not to share.
