Ode to Summer
As summer fades to fall,
it's nice to look back into the gardens at some of the beautiful blooms.
Snow in the Summer gets no water yet
still provides a wonderful white carpet
Not all plants have to have flowers to be beautiful -
this Hosta made it all the way until the 4th of July
this year before a hailstorm turned it to tatters.
The Hummingbirds are still here this year even though it's now fall.
Soon they will be flying south, and the garden
will be a much quieter and lonelier place.
