A beautiful spring.
Next a strong summer,
Moves to a waning fall
As blossom and leaf are shed.
To winter slumber,
Renewed with the warm spring breezes,
To flower once more with vigor-
Begins the cycle again.

As a gardener, I often see my life’s journey as parallel to the seasons in the garden. This poem was written after one of those reflective moments.
Pictured here are Oriental Poppies and their seedheads. They have such a unique look, and I am struck often by their mandala tops.
These are the same poppies in bud and flower. I love the crinkly, papery petals resembling crepe paper.
I leave you with a few additional words about a perennial life. I welcome you to download the photo and share it.
