The Garden Gate

Daily Prompt:  Gate

Picture From Garden Lovers Club

Welcome to my garden.
Please enter through the gate.
Come and meet my children
As happily they wait.

There’s Lily, Dahlia and Camellia
Sitting there by the bench.
And Kunal resting by the pond.
As Rose watches from the fence

You can see Myrtle’s hiding in the back.
Petunia’s playing shy.
Begonia’s lounging in the shade.
Daisy’s dancing toward the sky.

Enjoy the sweet aromas
Of cocktails served on the breeze.
Drink in all the flavors
Hear the buzzing bees.

Then sit back and imagine
How bland our life would be.
If God had not provided
The beauty we now see.

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 63

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 63


1. My favorite thing on my daily to-do list is read and blog.  I guess that’s two things, but I really can’t do one without the other.  I have challenged myself to read 101+ books this year and started a blog for reviewing the books.  

2. My least favorite thing on my daily to-do list is washing dishes.  It is a never ending chore.  Even with having a dishwasher it seems that there is always something on the counter or in the sink that is dirty. 

3. I could really do without having to do laundry.  I hate doing laundry.  It is so time consuming and right now my dryer needs a new timer so I can’t get distracted because I will have a fire if I forget about it running.

4. I would love to have more time to spend with my grandchildren, especially my youngest granddaughter Isabella.  She lives far from me so my time with her is very limited.  I have three other grandchildren who live close to me and I do spend as much time with them as I can.  They are the light of my life.
