Behold the Gold!



The sun was behind the clouds today;
Everything seemed to be touched by grey.
A good day for honest garden toil,
Dealing with roots and shoots and soil.
A trip to the nursery seemed ideal
To get away from the bend and kneel,
And look for Spring flowers to light our way
On such a drabby sort of day.
Then, round a corner, I espied
A sunny day personified!
Set against slats of brightest yellow,
Themselves a treat, so bright and mellow,
I saw three 'suns', well, imitations,
Pleasantly planned rotund creations,
Destined to grace some garden wall
And bring delight to one and all.
I threw them a glance as if to say
'Thanks a lot! You've made my day!'
More garden delight here:

Lovely filigreed structures to wish and sigh over! They look wonderful against that yellow wall.
"To get away from the bend and kneel" - love that expression.

Glinting golden wall,
do you imitate the sun
or are you jaundiced?

The yellow wall is just beautiful. You are approaching Spring and I am approaching Fall - I am always amazed at our world. I have enjoyed my visit to your blog and have a lovely new week.
