|Love the poem, love the garden, love your creativity. Reminds me of my mom, who strategically places her grandchildren's discarded teddy bears in her flower garden! She lives in NJ, too! :)

|Loved your clever, witty (and so true) poem...but drat it,
couldn't get your photos link to display.
Have to admit, the humidity here is such that I've resorted
to silk flowers in my outside urns. Tsk-tsk on me!
Your above photo is lovely though. Thanks for this package, Anita.

|Reviewed by Taylor Ryan
|Your poem and photos were such a treat this morning..both so colorful. Having spent most of the daylight hours in my own garden this past weekend in the incessant heat , I think I can even appreciate this gift of yours more. I even jotted down a few notes for a poem along the same vein including references to the chipmonks I encountered...good minds think alike, but A, who's gonna deadhad all those petunias, That's a full time job!
|Reviewed by Ch'erie de Perrot
|Nice Petunia's, and I like that archway covered in..Dang I forgot, I have the bright pink variety on my fence down the back..Love this...

And now to check out the other Photos
Love Cherry Pie aka Ch'erie and all that Rot

|I love this enchanting haven for fairies and fireflies...unicorns and gnomes, turtles and a door to the white rabbits hiding place ...enchantment , aromas and fun. This is an awesome poem full of you my dearest friend and your nature is alive and well with glorious mysteries.
Your daughter and mine have the same dress...just about.

|Beautiful poem, Lady A, as well as a lovely garden. A lot of love seen in these blooms, which will bloom again after the storm, with your TLC. :)

|First, I liked your poem, since I garden, too. And mine seems to be doing alright despite the intense heat, too. I even picked some peppers this morning.
Second, What??!! I can't believe it??!!
No Cookie statues anywhere??!!!
Third, I am envious. Your garden is much nicer than mine. And at least you have the castle in the garden. Is that where you hide those cookie relatives of yours??!!
|Reviewed by Birgit and Roger Pratcher
|This poem is brilliant, but it does not prepare one for the view your pictures offer! (Can we move right into this garden?) Your garden is spectacular, a view one will not forget, a joy that will bloom on in memory, too wonderful!!!

You know its the cutest thing, when people pass my garden, they try to look at it, but don't want me to know they're looking. When I see that I usually invite them up to have a look, because most of my property is above street level, my house is built on a cliff. Little kids come right up to it, and like to find things, I have little snakes and turtles on the rocks, junky plastic toys, and colored glass marbles on the ground, between the stepping stones. I let kids take them home when they find them. I have so much stuff in the garden....old McDonald's toys, like Tarzan, or little dinosaurs, paper weights, to reflect the sun, little unicorns, glass fish I have hanging from tree branches (flying fish), flying pigs, rows of bird houses, I call Sub-bird-ia, yuk yuk, swans, lots of rude trolls, (nose pickers and butt scratchers), Mikasa crystal bells,so many things. If something breaks in my house, and its interesting, I find a way of using it in the garden. Like refrigerator magnets, that were stained glass, the magnets came off, and I tied them to flower hooks, I have swarski crystal beads hanging from tree branches here and there, to make rainbow reflections.........I know it makes me look nutty........lol........but my garden is wild and as eclectic as my hair.......
I do it all myself........lots of work.....thats the only drag, but I do enjoy it......thanks all for your sweet compliments.........

Your garden so closely resembles mine!!!
My arbor (though made of concrete and stone, is situated where
yours is, my planters are the same kind, there is a profusion of
Petunias...which I dearly love for their sturdiness and ever-blooming
I plant and prune sumac to look like tropical palms. Though my garden is lavender and blue in the summer months, it is full of fall
colors of the most earthy kind, in autumn.
Do you live in the Midwest, too?
Going now to check out your other pics.

|Your poem brought your garden to life for me even before I saw the pictures...and the pictures have me pining for my gardening days!

|Poem, pictures you and yor daughter are all truly beautiful, well done and great job of taking care of all.

|A beautiful garden dear Anita and an excellent construct also.
Very smooth and flowing, and I agree with Eileen, that garden is you, an extension of who you are inside.
Could easily be an allegory, too, about relationship with people.

|Liked this irreverent horticultural gem, flower of a poem, A!
yes, they do need require lots of attention, even small gardens.
Just listened to Oscar Wilde's selfish Giant on the radio -
he built a wall around his garden and put up a big notice:
TRESPASSERS WILL BE PROSECUTED. Old Jack Frost and his friend, The Hail, were the only visitors in the giant's garden after a while.
the flowers popped their heads up and went back to sleep: he's too selfish, they said to each other..... ha! hope you enjoyed this snippet across the garden wall, my dear! kenny
