Towing the line

I’m sitting in the garden
the sunshine’s nice and warm
Think perhaps I’ll stay a while
‘Cos this is what it’s for

Thought a little earlier
that I might work a while
tidying up the garden
but the sunshine gave a smile

Said that I would rather
sit down and with a beer
chill out and soak up all the rays
whilst I was sitting here

And as I’m not one to argue
when the argument is strong
I sat right down and grabbed a beer
and played there right along

Sussex Prairies

Sussex Prairies was a find
up near Henfield way
A lovely sculpture garden
on a lovely summer’s day
Yellow flowers in abundance
enjoyed by everyone
exemplified the sculpture
in the glorious August sun
And after cake and cups of tea
we took a new route home
Pleased this place discovered
Somewhere else to us now known

Iron Blooms

The collection is growing
of our iron blooms
amongst the nasturtiums out there
Exposed to the weather
they rust and remain
with permanent gusto and flair

We have poppies and daisies
and other such things
positioned and planted at leisure
For as the year changes
and plants come and go
they remain for continuing pleasure

Lovely IV

The variegated colour of
our Nasturtiums in full bloom
return year after year
when they first appear in June
They really are quite lovely
and I’m glad they reappear
as their colour in the garden
brings us pleasure, yes and cheer

In the garden with Chris

Sunday in the garden
with jazz and sun and beer
And family, conversation
pavlova and good cheer
Laughter on the Springtime air
from here this afternoon
We’ve been out since breakfast
and evening’s coming soon
But Chris Barber and his clarinet
still has a voice to hear
so we’ll all stay a little while
and have another beer

Freshly mown grass

Freshly mown grass
the fragrance sublime
right here in the garden
that is Sal’s and mine
It smells of the summer
the sunshine and more
that’s coming our way
with promise in store

So we shall be out here
and making the most
when not at the beach
on the Sussex coast
Our own private haven
for hours to pass
enjoying the smell of
freshly mown grass

In the sun

Sat out in the garden
for the first time this year
Ate my lunch in the sun. It was warm.
Spent a short while
with that sun on my head
thinking this will soon be the norm

Thought, this is the life
and what it’s about
So pleased that the cold stuff is done
From now on apart
from the odd day it rains
I’ll be here outside in the sun
