Tiny flashes light the path
Winding through the forest dark,
Minute points of silver light
From heavenly anvil spark.
There’s wonders in the night time
That can only be perceived
By wise and curious people
Who always have believed.
The brightest beam of sunlight
Is not as welcomed or fair
As those sparkling lanterns
And the One who placed them there.
Cheerful golden Sundrops!
The beginnings of White Feather Hosta
A lovely lupin.
Here are two of my latest patterns inspired by our beautiful garden flowers:

This is what has happened in our garden this week:

Winter’s ragged blanket withdraws
Washed away by April’s tears.
Crocuses open their purple petals
To a smiling, unbroken, blue sky.
Breezes gently nudge the trumpet daffodills
While drowsy bees awaken.
Squirrels and chipmunks stretch and yawn,
Aroused in budding branches
By the joyful serenades of robins
And red-winged blackbirds
Responding to the warm coaxing
Of a burgeoning May.
