Midsummer Garden

 my midsummer garden is a sea of color

 I don't spend near enough time
enjoying this raucous color display

 the older I get
the less I tolerate the temperature extremes

how do these beauties survive the recent heat wave

 thoughts of painting flowers have been tickling my brain

I have the supplies, what's stopping me:
sometimes I think too much,
and I don't put thoughts into action.
Thanks for reading and
for all your comments.


  1. In the height of summer I do my best to turn into a troll and only come out at night or very early. I don't see a lot of my much loved garden in mid-summer. And envy you your artistic talent.

  2. Hi Sue, thanks, I have turned into a troll this year too, I do go out in the morning to check the garden and in the evening to water, otherwise I am a prisoner to the air conditioning. lol, we shall see if I can put the thoughts in my head to paper and have them turn out like I want.

  3. It's lovely to see your garden in bloom. I am slowly bringing mine back to life!

    1. Hi Suzi, thanks, if you saw my garden up close, it's full of weeds, hard to bend down with my back and bad knees and little to no one who is willing to work like I did in my 50s.

  4. What gorgeous flowers. I finally hauled myself out early to enjoy garden before hot sun hit it this morning. I will have more sunflowers than I know what to do with!

    1. Hi Barbara, thanks, I need to grow some sunflowers next year, they are so spectacular. My peas and tomatoes are taking up all my energy this year.


I love suggestions, questions, critiques, thanks for your comment
