loss - haiku chain


my woodland garden

of calming greens, creams, and white

has become burnt lands

burnt lands, prized hosta’s

are fading in noon day sun,

turtle heads struggle

struggle to maintain

their young stalks reaching upwards

when the shade is lost

is lost with absence

of decades old trees shelter

allowing their growth

their growth protected,

loved and nurtured over years

my heart aches with loss

The Beeeee Whisperer

Who is tired of tucking plants and pots in the shed, under trees, anywhere there is shelter from these frosty nights? Me Me ME !!!

When you place everything back into the sun for the day, please check all blooms. I found this wee Bumble tucked into a Begonia. I was certain he had frozen over night but thought maybe he just needs thawing, and it wouldn’t hurt him if he was deceased. I placed the pot in full sun with his wee Bumble butt facing outward where the sun doth shine.  

Five minutes later, he shook himself, spread his widdle wings and he flew away. YAY!

They call me the Beeeee Whisperer       Bzzz Bzzz Bzzz

O dear Mama

O dear,

mama seems to have gained a bit of weight,

could she be, is she, ooooo nooooo,

her babes, four at last count, from last year

are still visiting the bird now squirrel feeder

and if she is I will go bankrupt

providing seed to song birds

only to be eaten by the resident squirrels.
