That lavender time again II

It’s really quite strange
but this time last year
I picked all my lavender
and posted right here
On this very same day
In the mid-July sun
when the first set of flowers
were ready and done

And I used the same basket
and took the same pic
It’s just the words that have changed
to be academic
So below I’ve included
for you readers a link
to last years’ poem
to see what you think

That lavender time again – 23/7/16

Many happy returns II

Many happy returns
lives up to its name
With ever more roses
again and again

We’ve lost count of the blooms
it has given since May
When as a gift it was given
on a special birthday

They’re pink and they’re lovely
so we hope for a while
that they’ll stay and keep blooming
as they sure bring a smile

Lilac Lovliness

They grow in abundance
by the railway bridge line
And their fragrance in summer
is completely divine
Their heady perfume
just intoxicates me
So I took this quick picture
for you all to see

Mores the pity here though
that you can’t take a whiff
As this Jemverse blog
is not ‘scratch n sniff’!

Counting the days II

I’m not past my prime
yet sometimes I feel
it takes longer these days
to recover and heal

And I know that the sun
should help me feel well
But sometimes it seems
very much the hard sell

So I think what I need
is a break well away
A bit of a rest and
a nice holiday

And as luck would have it
that’s happening soon
A week’s cruise to Greece
that we booked back in June

Just four weeks away
so we’re counting the days
as we both need a rest
from this pesky malaise

New Sofa

We have a new sofa
it’s lovely and green
And it is the best sofa
that we’ve ever seen

It’s a great one for comfort
for Sally and me
and is really quite perfect
for watching TV

So I’ll finish this verse
then lounge for a while
on our brand new sofa
with the curl of a smile

A ray of sun captured

I captured the sunset
at the beach hut today
Late in the evening
with a golden display

Reflective and gorgeous
the warmth of the sun
captured right here
as the day is all done

Morning and a paddle

Went boating of a morning
Early birds out with the sun
When everything was quiet
And the day had just begun

The water was idyllic
With just a gentle swell
And the temperature was lovely
As by the picture you can tell

So I paddled for a little while
Watching from the sea
Then popped back home for breakfast
And a nice hot cup of tea
