setting out plants
I take a chance this year
with something untried–
at my age even this
is an adventure


peonies bloom again
after trying to kill them
in ignorance;
what else have I lost
because of my not knowing?

Presence, autumn 2016
Ribbons, spring 2017

Now, that is my kind of adventure! Good luck with your plants.

Clearly, we live and we learn; we strive and we grow; nice jutapositions in your flower haiku

much love...

Thank you Sandy and Gillena,

I'm not doing much gardening this year. Age and arthritis have slowed me down.

Thanks for visiting.
