Weekly Photo Challenge – It Is Easy Being Green

Hi, I’m Garden Frog! Welcome to My Garden! It IS Easy Being Green! I’m always green, but the garden… we’ll wait and see in the summer!

Please see poem below, by Mick E Talbot in responding to photos of this post!

Green 1

There are some early blooms in my garden. But most of the flowers are still waiting for more sun to bring out their splendid colors. After a couple months of heavy rain in the winter, my garden and yard are still in eye soothing green.

Green 2

The iceberg roses and pink roses still have the green buds.

Both the jade plant and the rosemary are going crazy. They are almost overgrown.

The lavender has one strand of purple flowers ready to bloom. The mixed plants flower bed has no signs of flowers yet!

As far as the Date Palms. They are almost reaching to the sky!

Weekly Photo Challenge: It IS Easy Being Green!

Haiku, senryu comment.

simply green
If truth be known
it breaths for us
~~~
we breath for it
now surplus well nearly
hence all the fuss
~~~
carbon dioxide
we wouldn’t survive one gasp
important is green
~~~
keeping the air clean
the way it was still should be
like your greens all do
~~~
dependant on you
your nurturing loving care
thanks for the fresh air
~~~

Amazing photos, a beautiful garden of Miriam Hurdle.

      • It’s awesome when talent and skill gets passed thru generations.. From our parents, my sis got a huge dose in art and cooking.. I have good spatial abilities and mechanically inclined..

          • No 😂 I’m a good tinkerer and can really pack households in a truck.. But my fav spatial ability story is my mom’s tale of the embarrassed delivery man.. My mom got the biggest kick out of the guy who brought our stove in Pa. when Dad was readying their retirement home in Fla..The stove broke.. Mom picked out a new one and I came over and unhooked the old broken stove and “walked it” around a corner and thru the back door before I went off to work.. It took about a half hour.. The delivery guy rolls the new stove on a dolly and can’t get this smaller stove even thru the door, either on or off the hand truck.. He tells my mom that the screen door and back door will have to come off again, to get the new one in.. Again ? It, wasn’t taken off when my daughter took this stove out this morning, she told him and she told me she purposely pointed to the obviously larger stove I had moved a few hours earlier.. The store gave some cash back for the inconvenience and the new stove was outside next to the old one when I came over after work.. We laughed many years over me having to move those stoves because the guy getting paid to do it, couldn’t see the angles.. My career at that time was fire, water and hazmat damage restoration.. This ability to visualize how odd shapes fit thru or together came in very handy in several aspects.. packing out a home or business, eyeballing manhours and material estimation at the scene of the emergency service response (The clipboard and calculator come later for total costs) .. It was a very interesting and physical job I really enjoyed..

    • Oh, you made me smile!! When I was outside doing gardening, neighbors, and even kids who walked by would say that “you have a nice garden!” That made me smile also. I did it for relaxation. Good to see some beauty as a result. You’re welcome anytime to roll around in my lawn or have a splash when the sprinklers are on!! hehe…..
