Beside My Garden Gate

My garden blooms with roses rare,
 And trees where nestlings mate.
In early spring when soft winds sigh,
Around my garden gate.
A rustic seat is hidden where,
Both joys and sorrows wait.
Where trumpet vine and daffodils,
Bloom round my garden gate.
When woes beset on every hand,
And sorrow seems my fate.
I grab my hat and spend an hour,
Beside my garden gate.
I bid my troubles all adieu,
Until a later date.
And find a peaceful haven there,
Beside my garden gate.
~ Blanche Elder Crispin

What can be prettier than Hydrangea?  I love all of the colors. My friend Betsy has a variegated variety that is so pretty and unusual. When they bloom, I'll take a picture of them to post.

A little bird feeder in the garden. That's a lizard's tail you see.  He wouldn't move so I could take the picture.

Pink eye Impatiens sitting next to a little boy and his rabbit. I love cute statues especially ones with rabbits.

A silk wreath I got from a beautiful gift- decor shop called Primrose Lane.

Have a lovely week.

Hello Clara
Such a pretty wreath on your gate, the roses look real. Hydrangeas are a favourite shrub, so many colours and varieties to choose from.
I like the poem that compliments your mosaic.
