Summer Chores



"Spring flowers are long since gone.
Summer's bloom hangs limp on every terrace.
The gardener's feet drag a bit on the dusty path and the hinge in his back is full of creaks."-

~Louise Seymour Jones

It will soon be time to put the garden to bed. The summer seems to pass so quickly, especially this year. Lovely picture Jo and such appropriate words. The hinge in my back is creaking too these days.

It feels like the hinge in my back is rusted shut!

I am always charmed by your talent for finding exactly the right poem for each special moment - even the creaky ones!

Oh thank you for sharing this poem! It's so fitting right now. My husband and I moan and groan every morning till we get the kinks out!
