I bought these a few weeks ago, they are still in bloom at a bright spot near the window. We are up to week three, with a diet of indirect sunlight and three ice cubes once a week – we seem to still be keeping company. Orchids have a mind of their own. Mostly, I’m just along for the ride.
(I took this photo in my garden yesterday. Can’t wait for these peonies to open up:) The poor thing was in a deep bow this morning. Probably drunk on raindrops.)
birds have gone silent
they too are caught up
in the melody of the rain
nature walk interrupted
as may flowers and young leaves
dance in spring rain

Cee’s Flower Of The Day
This tulip is actually from my garden. The only one of it’s kind that survived the foraging of the squirrels.

On Garden culture –
Ants are about hauling several times their weight
Bees and butterflies share a flower
Showing no interest in exerting power
Just what have they figured out that we have yet to?
Maybe some day soon it’s something we’ll get up to
For dVerse Poets where the host this week is De. The prompt word for this week’s quadrille (a 44 words poem) is
Ants, going about their business doing whatever it is they are doing to my peony.
For Cee’s Photography Challenge Flower of The Day
Yep, I actually knew the name of this one. It’s been in it’s corner of my garden for years. Each year it gets bigger and bolder:)
