Flowers_everywhere__Mid_July_07._016.jpg

My blazing mid-summer peak. My patio garden is VERY tiny. BBC Gardeners World magazine showed this photo in their last August edition.

"At last, rich,
High summer, haze of heat,
Summit of the seasons,
Flowers for me are everywhere
And galore,
Prolific, more to come
And ever more.

Abundance,
Angle-of-the-sun-high,
Basking,
So blessed and satisfied my soul
Of this - profusion.

(Camera happy too,
Lens busy about the capture).

My rewarded spirit is rejoiced,
Lifted,
Breathing blessing upon blessing
For this,
Yes - even joy!
For this,
Winter's long, locked icy chamber was endured,
In faith, in hope,
And in preparatory toil.
Alas, all this too will pass -
Summer slips away, once again lost".

(Composed because I needed to for this photo. Like the others, also written in the bath).

It may be tiny but you've certainly got some plants in there and doesn't it look wonderful?

Really enjoyed your poem as well as this pic of your garden. All life is a circle and what is now will come again...............love the Agapanthus too!

You are a great poet as well as a gardener. The Agapanthus is great. I've got one that hasn't flowered yet. I'm hoping for joy this year.
