How quickly the gardening season comes and goes.
As quickly (and quietly) as each season flows.
We're always excited to begin.
We're saddened when the season ends.
Spring awakens hibernating bulbs.
You'll notice that bees also love.
Not just flowers but also bushes and trees.
Always a welcome sight to see.
Beware: the month of May may bring
a surprise overnight snow covering everything.
All too soon we'll see dandelions in bloom.
At my house, within the flower beds most loom.
Spring flowers have come and gone.
It's time to mow one's lawn.
We notice other flowers now bloom.
A welcome sight each month of June.
So many flowers in bloom!
Overnight more zoom.
Stroll your garden at different times
as many photo ops you'll find.
At the end of the day be sure to take time
to enjoy nature's picture show shine.
Before you know it your vegetable garden will produce
a bountiful supply for your use.
Do take time to enjoy pollinators
who bring so much joy.
All too soon, yet none too soon,
one summer day sunflowers bloom.
Every August morning - harvest.
It was worth it. Can't wait!
Look what else morning brings!
There's a time and a season for everything.
Gardeners are happy when harvest arrives.
Their work paid off and vegetables survived.
All too soon it's autumn.
Much work awaits to be done.
The hill is more colorful each passing day.
Too soon, this season hurridly makes way.
Garden cleanup as frost in the forecast.
A bountiful harvest.
In the morn, hoarfrost
Quietly snow descends.
One season ends, another begins.
How quickly the year went by.
Seed catalogs daily arrive
keeping the dream alive.
We peruse with much anticipation;
we forget the suffering that gardening brings.
It was worth it in the end.
