Two Primroses and a bud, one grape hyacinth and a dead-nettle..

As a deer longs for water so I long for you my God. My mind ( soul) thirsts for God , for the living God. My tears fall as I hear this question:

“Where is your God?”

Psalm42: 1-3 (Sandy’s understanding.)

All in a Finnish glass candle stick holder. Two primroses with bud and leaf, one grape hyacinth with leaf and a cut-leaved purple dead-nettle .
A glass holder of wonder.
Under the green of the leaves notice the apple still round but now wrinkly brown.
2022 ‘s flower and fruit
and 2023′ s compost.
An Apple left by me on the ground.
A thick healthy Primrose growing around it.
The start of the grape hyacinths.
The first in the garden.
A dotting of bright blue here and there orderly buds from wide to a point,
open to tightly closed.
Their stems stand straight up
between their long floppy thin green leaves.
Not in the bed but just out ,
on the side of the elm log
is a hairy little plant,
a cut-leaved purple dead- nettle.
It blooms from March to October.
Notice its irregular teeth cuts on each leaf.
And then I spent a while in appreciation of these three plants:
the smooth primrose,
the hairy dead-nettle
and the
thoroughly organised grape hyacinth.

Poetry is the synthesis of hyacinths and biscuits.

Carl Sandburg 1878- 1967 American poet.

I was so fascinated by the above line that I went on to enjoy Carl Sandburg’s poetry reading which I share with you. He first talks about children and poetry and then reads four poems he wrote for children .

Carl Sandburg Reads Poetry for Children.

Thank you for coming into our garden where it is wet and still raining. We won’t complain, it may be storing water for a long hot summer.
