Autumn Leaves



the gardens summer bower
green leaves from maple, walnut and acacia,
growing into each others branches
have enveloped in autumns embraces
into a pattern of cut lace cloth
with body of umbres sunshine
their outline trimmed against the evening sky.

Autumn Arrives



last day of summer,
autumn crocuses in bloom
celebrate the change

Rescued from an abandoned garden
 these beauties spring forth late September.
  Someone who cared for them many years past
 now nurtures them in the present.

Mr. El Grande Toadie


To celebrate what is left of July,  Mr EL Grande Toadie...


These creatures are predictors of weather.  If it's wet I'll never see one, but when it's hot and dry their presence is known.  Floating in the Pond during the day, and prowlling the garden at night.  This guy is obviously keeping the garden clean of bugs.

paint me Montes garden



paint me Montes garden
with waterlilies of lilac hue


and I'll share my ferns
coloured fronds brush-stroked
mauve, grey green and stems of aubergine
with subtly he would have adored

Reflection - Haiku



after the rain ends
orbs float upon still water
springs last reflection
