A Garden Visit

I want you to know
how carefully
I watered the tender shoots
you planted
in my little garden.

Flowers now adorn the ground
the fruits are ripe
bring a strongly woven basket
and bring with you also
the finest palm wine
that your expert tapping
can brew
we must feast and wine
till the small hours
of our short days together.

Joy and love
shall be our daily
harvest songs.

~Micere Githae Mugo (Kenya)

  1. Your world is so different this time of year!

    I love that poem, especially “we must feast and wine
    till the small hours
    of our short days together”!

  2. This is such a welcome sight! Gives me faith to believe that all sorts of little things are waiting to pop-up once all of the snow goes away 🙂

  3. way to go..you ARE germinating over here for sure ..luscious purples … and oh the greens .. just so pretty

  4. Swiss chard looks ready to eat!

  5. ca sent bon le printemps !

  6. A fine shot of colorful flowers and greenery that looks alive and well. Mine always seem to dry up and….. An enjoyable post. I’m ready for some colorful flowers….We got 10 inches of snow last night…and we thought winter was over! 🙂

  7. Beautiful vegetables and flowers. I love that germinating sign! I’m jealous though — even with a hoop house I’m just now getting lettuce and radishes started.

  8. such beautiful purple.
