Garden Bloggers Muse Day - December.

"Just as a dancer, turning and turning,
may fill the dusty light with the soft swirl
of her flying skirts, our weeping willow ---
now old and broken , creaking in the breeze ---
turns slowly, slowly in the winter sun,
sweeping the rusty roof of the barn
with the pale blue lacework of her shadow."
- Ted Kooser, Winter Morning Walks

Garden Bloggers Muse Day is hosted by Carolyn Gail over at Sweet Home and Garden Chicago, where you can discover more December muses.

P.S. If you would like to be entered into a draw to celebrate my first official anniversary of blogging please leave a comment here by 5th December ! A short story featuring sweet peas will soon be winging its way to the winner.


  1. Thanks for the link to Carolyn - as you know I'm a poetry fan so I'm off to have a look over there now.

    Lovely poem and photo.


  2. Nice photo and poem! I'm kind of happy it's December, because December is the part of winter I love! So much to do and look forward to! (It's march and April when winter gets old!)

  3. Lovely! Trees are beautiful this time of the year, showing their trunks and branches.

  4. Hi Anna~~ Gorgeous tree silhouette! Sweet poem.

  5. Hi Anna, what a lovely poem for December and a perfect photo to accompany it! I'll check out your link, as well.

  6. Nice little poem.

    It makes it easier to look for the good on a dreary December day.


All your comments are much appreciated and treasured. I wil try to reply to everyone who leaves a comment, but it may take me a few days, especially when I start spending more time in the garden and at the lottie. I know that you will understand :) I am sure that I will also visit your blog if I have not already done so. If you have any specific questions I will either reply to them here or you can email me at :
