Winter Garden

Winter gardens...what a sight!
Respectful, subservient,
Humble, contrite.
With textures softened and
Colors subdued
An invitation to
Coffee-tea-hues –
That’s how we like it –
Gently steeped and infused
And delicately splashed
With pastel winter blues.

Thank you, Joy. I'm happy to hear that I served up this little garden rant in a way that pleased you.

Oh I do like this - coffee-tea-hues gently steeped and infused especially!

Roberta S said...

Oh, Thank You, Pauline. We do enjoy our tea and coffee this way, do we not? In the blush of nature or vicariously out in your yard in summer?
