Garden Chores Await

"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."-

The pics you post are great... all of them! They make a person feel good. My dad and his family came to the US from England when he was a boy.

Just got back from my booth and it looks very much like that picture.And, there is gardens to tend to, And, my husband has requested I make him cookies. No rest for the wicked.

Kathy said...

Beautiful picture. The kitty looks like I feel after doing my gardening. Love the quote too. Thanks for always finding lovely things to share with us.

The quotes you select to accompany your photos are like a personal signature, somehow.... While different subject matter, the way they're stated is SO "Brit". And thought not a Brit myself, I am soothed and comfortable here. ♥

I love both the poem and and the picture. So much can be captured in a short post. Dianne

So true! We might have picked our last tomatoes today.

Looks like Oliver's ancestor to me. :-)

I have always liked Charles Wysocki and the addition of the cat makes the picture purrfect!

I love the picture and the quote...and Mrs. Rabbit Baker is adorable. What is about kittens and rabbits and even little mice. Oliver Cat makes me sleepy in your previous post. How I've missed three, I will never know. Maybe it's age.

Love the Wysocki print. I have it as a puzzle made into a picture on our guesthouse wall. It always reminds me of how I feel after working in the garden for a few hours.

I really do like the artist. I have never seen this one before now. It is wonderful. I see he has Oliver planted in the middle of it all.

I love this artist - one of my favorites and the verse in very appropriate :-)

My own garden chores are waiting as well....
