Vigilant she toils, sweet attention planting
Violets, her favorite, delicate, fragrant flower
Valued for their deep, purple-blue petals
Visioning their success along with the
Vinca, viburnum, valerian and variegated ivy
Vining way up the sturdy oak
Victory will be had…with patience

Uh, oh…I goofed. The form is to use six syllables not six words. I’ll try to redo it tomorrow…too late now!

Mira, almost two years old…gardening time with her wonderful other Grandma.
Here’s a recent photo of Mira taken while she was doing some important gardening with her other Grandma. She’s wearing the very appropriate t-shirt that her Auntie bought her that says, Lettuce Turnip the Beet! Mira will be two years old on September 3.

There will be no breach of peace

Took up the challenge over at dVerse Poets to use action words of one profession to describe another: http://dversepoets.com/
I worked for several years as a legal secretary in a law firm where wills, trusts, contracts and corporate law were the main focus. I used my experience there to describe gardening and sharing the earth’s bounty with all.

With jobs at hand
The need arises
To start out early
In the garden
To trim just so
Scrubbing bird baths
Filling them fresh
A service I love
For my garden friends
With seeds aplenty
Our yard’s overhaul
Lopping off limbs
Cut back’s needed
To control the advance
The garden’s thriving
In summer’s clime

hoe the weeds,
prepare the soil
for planting a tree.
You must dig deep and make
a gently rounded, high berm
to hold in the moisture that will
provide sustenance for its growing.
A tabebuia’s in the garden now.
Caring for it daily while giving love,
you’ll be amazingly rewarded
by its hardiness and beauty.
A bit of fertilizer
now and then, will keep it
strong and blossoming.
bloom en masse
My first attempt at an etheree. These lovely Tabebuia (Tab-a-boo-ya) trees bloom in the spring here in Central Florida. They are especially spectacular when blooming by the water’s edge– their brilliant yellow being reflected in the water. Also known as the Yellow Trumpet Tree for their trumpet shaped flowers. They also come in pink (Pink Trumpet Tree).

tend garden’s earthen bounty.
Joy transmits to both

Hibiscus smiles at the sun.
This is my entry for Potluck # 14 describing my pastime/hobby of gardening.
