Gardening Love

I don't know about you
 but
gardening gives me peace-
a kind of indescribable serenity
with
dirt under my nails
and
flowerpots overflowing with annuals

Perennials pop through the dirt
with nary a care
filling up the garden with beauty
in the blink of an eye-
my favorites
 that return each year are
lilies

clematis vines

and phlox
fill my heart with joy
and my eyes with wonder lust

My garden is my oasis,
my place to escape from all the cares of the day
and of the world-
Off to the garden-gotta fly-Claire
