Life in the Garden


Wonderful!

She Kept A Parrot

Clematis

The Clematis blossoms dried

and remain on the vine

interesting still in the straw version of themselves

Romero sheared the Foxtail Ferns to the ground

As he promised, they sprang from the soil

into mounds of green Foxtail forests.

 

Bromeliad-VII

The leaves of the Bromeliads turned brown

in the winter freeze and

I thought they were dead

Suddenly, a blossom appeared from the ruin

The Bird’s Nest Ferns

with their leather leaves

are spilling over their pots

in a kind of celebration of the coming summer

The Pintas are busy making new buds

and blossoms too

New leaves spring up like green Seahorses

from the centers of the ferns

And Miss Lily has returned

to make the garden her own.
