A Summer Garden.
Hanging baskets in a row
Really make the garden glow
Reds and purples, white and green
Verbena known as peaches and cream
Eucalyptus and the sun king too
With Honeysuckle growing through
Hibiscus, Hostas, Marigolds in bloom
And Roses red for my front room
The hanging Bride all decked in white
Beside Clematis looking bright
Darkeyena shows her colours blue
Geraniums stand up bold and true
Hebes turn from red to green
Viburnum still has not been seen
Passion fruit climbs trellis fair
 The Heliotropium scents the air
In my pagola as I sit
And watch the sparrows as they flit
Among the flowers in all their glory
From me to you a nature story.

Thanks for letting us enjoy your garden. We've been in continual rain for more than a week and are in a state of emergency with floods today. I so anxious to see the sun and sit in the garden. I truly enjoyed this. jp

You Sir, are the master of beauty and passionate poem
You Sir, have a heart with colors so floral and warm

In your garden I would love to stroll
in the summer with all of natures golds

A glass of cool tasteing wine to blend with the floral day
as we talked, laugh and walked  as friends our way

This is absolutely beautiful, and I can see the colours as if they are right in front of me.

Awesome write, Graham...

I pictured this so well my friend. To sit under the arch of roses with a song in the heart. Nature so beautiful.
