1. I look forward to reading your blog each day. Truly an inspiration to me and I’m sure many others! I also believe that your garden is an extension of your home. Happy Memorial Day!

  2. Brenda,
    My favorite part of spring and summer, is strolling around my flower beds and pots, with a good cup of coffee. Just checking in with my friends. 😊. Unfortunately, I only have a short time period to do this, due to living in Michigan.

  3. The garden as poetry is a such an appropriate description. My husband and I enjoy taking cups of coffee with us as we walk around the yard, looking at what new things are sprouting up. Sometimes we make delightful discoveries and other times we find something not so good, such as a plant that has been sampled by a deer. But even that kind of discovery is interesting, in terms of what was happening when we were asleep. We have several bird feeders and they sure bring a lot of poetry to the yard with the different species bringing movement, color and sound. Thank you for sharing the poetry of your patio garden through your delightful words and photos.

  4. I love seeing the new and outstanding pretty in my garden flowers too. I am amazed everyday how things grow and you find something new with life in a garden. Love your pictures always and the poem is wonderful. Happy Memorial Day.

  5. Beautiful poem. Love the garden.Our summers here in Canada are short.Would love to have a garden to last longer.Have a great evening.

  6. What’s stopping you from shooting in manual? Turn the dial on your cannon, customize a few settings and experiment.Automatic will always be there.

  7. I Love going out and just piddling around in my garden.The times we are in I am so thankful for my space.Several daylilies fixing to bloom,also my Hibiscus as well will be blooming soon.Thanks for the lovely words

  8. I love inspecting my gardens and flowers every day, too! It’s amazing how things change in just 24 hours.

  9. Lovely. Whenever I am out in a garden I am reminded of all the gardens in my past. Each garden is unique in its beauty and inspiration. You find so much of those things in yours. xo Laura

  10. What a wonderful post today! Thank you for sharing such happy sentiments, I shall think of them all day while I do my gardening and cooking.

    Have a wonderful Holiday!


  11. Your photography is so lovely. The flowers are always so clear with absolutely true to life colors. Would you mind revealing the type of camera you use? I would like to take better photos in my garden but I’m a real beginner and now have a simple camera. I would have to learn but I would like to take better photos. Thank you for any tips or camera information.

      1. Brenda, thank you so much. I will never be able to equal your photos but I’d like to try. Maybe in twenty years!

  12. I don’t know which I love more, your beautiful photos, or your lovely ability with words. The fairy creeping into my garden at night is an image that wrapped around my heart. Thank you, and it’s wonderful I don’t have to choose either photos of words, you provide us with both. It is a gift that you share with us. I love your fur baby reports as well. Again, thanks for giving us peace and loveliness in these times. It helps.

    1. Jan, I totally agree with you. I look forward to reading Brenda’s blog everyday!
