August Fridays

sweet aroma of the corn harvest

drifts in from the fields

flaky butter crust

dressing the country table

zucchini celebrating overflow

tomatoes are ripening

yellow beans dancing in a row

green broccoli dreams

 My daughters, 1996, Sara, Annie and Lara, standing by the little garden they planted.

sweet peas tiptoeing into our mouths

feast is upon us

as butterflies migrate towards the south

with the flowers giving their last hurrah

  2. Thank you, Mary…the tomatoes are growing but still very green. The zucchini plants were attacked by grubs–but only after 35 delightful zucchini were harvested. Your hard work paid off! As you know, the rest of the vegetables are in my imagination…

    A wonderful summer poem that brings back many happy memories of our own big garden. 🙂


    • dear Eliza. Happy August to you! The days are running by quickly! I embellished the “poetic garden”—I only have three items this summer…tomatoes, zucchini and beginning plants of rhubarb! Glad the words brought back “happy memories” for you! I am coming to visit your beautiful blog NOW!
