Walk along a soaked garden path in early March and what do you see? Raindrops, birds, insects, and the world waking up. So amazing, it drove me to write poetry. Herein a poem for March, the wondrous transformations in a garden, and the miracles of spring. They're everywhere. If we build it, they will come.

Be Aware! There is Magic in the Gardens on an October All Hallows’ Eve!
Why isn't the Winter Solstice the beginning of the New Year? Where are the birds & the bees? How many different fruits can we find in the garden in mid-December? Pondering these questions and more…and wishing everyone a season of light and hope!
The problem with getting a new camera for Christmas in 2012 was trying to sort through over 1000 garden photos! I see I am attracted to symmetry, contrast, and bees! Here are a few of my favorite shots, that STILL can't begin to capture the beauty and perfection of Mother Nature!
It is past the middle of November, temperatures are dipping into the 20s, and yet - oh my! - so many blooms in the garden! The bees, when they venture out, are particularly grateful. An I, too, appreciate them all that much more now!
On the Eve of All Hallows… when according to the ancient Celtics, we enter the dark half of the year…
