Enjoying The Garden - May 9, 2019


Garden Poem of the Day

Let's Have a Glass of Wine and Inspect the Flowers
By Brenda McGrath

Every day before the sun would set, my husband and I would have a glass of wine.
We would sit on the front porch admiring nature’s glory before us so fine!
We would enjoy the view of my husband’s hard work in our beautiful yard.
He was an expert country gardener, nothing for him was too hard.

We would take our glass of wine, and take a leisurely walk around the grounds,
Inspecting each flower and the vegetable garden, happy we didn’t live in town.
The roses were looking splendid, the dahlias brilliant, the impatiens had multiplied.
The flowers were at their peak, and it was wonderful to be outside!

In the vegetable garden we would find new squash, tomatoes, and beans,
Then we would pick some swiss chard for supper to have our greens.
We would go across the pond and sit in the gazebo for a different view,
Admiring the fountain, and the endless sky that was so blue.

Finally we would head back to the house to get our dinner started,
And after the flower and vegetable tour, we were recharged and lighthearted.
Looking back, I would not trade anything for those late afternoon strolls.
We were one with nature, appreciating God’s beauty to the depths of our souls.
