Garden Prose

Flower soup
an ode to Summer

Muddy soil
a worm's delight

Husks stand tall
salute to harvest

Berry blue
lone and majestic

crunched tight with marvel

Chicks n Hens
dense geometry

Grapes cascade
abundantly blessed

bees spritely feasting

Mud baby
your bath awaits.

oh this is so sweet - your baby enjoys the mud (and i'm sure also the bath)
my children used to "cook" flower soup as well...smiles
your pictures are really good!

Love this---what fun! It's so great when babies/children are permitted to have fun getting muddy! The mother who allows that to happen will be blessed in many ways.
I know--I was one.
