Two lavenders

Bought two big lavenders in pots
two years or so ago
and whereas one has grown abundant
the other one’s been slow
Having said that, the one I planted
is the one that’s done the best
So there’s a lesson here I think
to learn and in that time invest

So now I have transplanted
the one that was pot bound
to join the other in the sunshine
planted firmly in the ground
And I guess that I am hoping
it will do the same for me
and next year come out in flowers
like the other, brilliantly

Gorgeous II

Rustic, these sculptures
turn their heads to the sky
be it grey or bright blue
with clouds floating by

In our garden their splendour
brings pleasure each day
Each unique and quite gorgeous
in their own special way

We’re so pleased that we found them
in the Lewes town store
and it’s not beyond reason
that we’ll go back for more

Bumble bees and lavender

The bumble bees
love my lavender
They’re on it all the time
Drinking up the pollen
when the weather is sublime

And I’m jolly pleased
I planted them
last summer on a whim
As a bumper harvest later on
to me they now will bring

The beach is a birthday

At the beach hut on my birthday
(I was sixty yesterday)
And whilst not exactly sunny
It was perfect anyway
The sea was like a diamond
Flat calm, a lovely sight
Mirror-like, reflecting
the sky above so bright

There were rain clouds over Worthing
out there to the west
But also really peaceful
in this place I love the best
Besides, I had a brolly
and with clearer sky behind
even when the raindrops fell
I really didn’t mind

The beach it is a birthday
and come most every year
I’ll do my level best to come
as it’s always lovely here
Yesterday it was so tranquil
with no one else around
Just me, the beach and seagulls
and the calming ocean sound

Tawny Wood

The peace and
contentment of Tawny Wood
In our Scandinavian chalet
has been really lovely
We’ve all had a blast
Down in Sandy Balls Valley

We’ve walked with alpacas
stood in the rain
Watched as the sun came out bright
Wandered the woods
Looked up at the trees
with evident nature in sight

We’ve laughed in the hot tub
Danced to some tunes
Lounged and all lazed about
Had barbecues
breakfasts and lunches
both inside the chalet and out

It’s been a
fantastic weekend
For us and the dogs all together
The tonic that
all of us needed
combined with some excellent weather

Pink

The breeze has blown
all the pink to the ground
from the blossom up there in the tree
Like a carpet it lies
with a hint of surprise
which is very appealing to me

So I whipped out my phone
on my way back to home
and took a few pictures to keep
For it’s lovely to see
and breathtaking to me
so much that it caused me to weep

Moments of sublime

I went walking on a hilltop
though I wasn’t really there
And then I was beside the sea
with toes in water bare

I went climbing on a mountain
though it was I think a dream
As really I was looking back
at places I had been

Photos captured on my Mac
of memories in time
Providing for nostalgia
for moments of sublime
