(Can you spot the sliver of rainbow in there ?)
Poetry month now, Earth Day tomorrow. We can hit them both at once.
Since everyone’s gardens are waking up (at least the Northern hemisphere ones) and so many blogs I read are full of the optimism of Spring and the new growing season, I wanted to share a poem that celebrates organic gardening.
When I bathe
I use guano salts
To make my feet
Leaves cover me
From head to toe
And wrap my body
In smoothy bark
Do touch my skin
And I flower
Like a cherry tree
Pigeon shit elixir
For a healthy growing plant
James Wilde (a.k.a. my dad)
Happy month and happy day to all!

That is a great poem for the spring.. I hope you are having a nice warm day, we are still a bit chilly and boy am I tired of it! c
We’re having a nice, blustery thunderstorm today. Just the thing for the new transplants…
rain is good! c
I love the poem! And was just thinking of you and hoping that the garden was waking up beautifully. Happy Earth Day, Siobhan!
Thank you! Hey did you read about that 105 year old who said the secret to long life was bacon? Of course it is!

I didn’t read that! Googling now!
I cannot believe how green everything is in your photo! We’re still a few weeks away from those vies but they’re on the way.
Your father knows how to welcome Spring: with a bath and a poem. Perfect!
It’s the rain – we’ve got man-sized weeds growing everywhere!
Wow…You’re truly Over The Rainbow! 😀
Now to find the end of it…
It took me a minute to find that rainbow but glad I found….beautiful images!!!
Thank you! And thanks for stopping by.
That does it. I am putting you back into my email notifications. I just miss you every time because I don’t go to the reader often enough. You’ve been so busy and it is all just wonderful! 🙂
I’m too sporadic a poster, I think. But I am working on it!
