I was so happy working up a sweat
in the Open bar of Joy, weeding and pruning and planting
But the temperature has gone from 90 to 40
and it has rained for two days
I don't mind the rain really, it's pretty seeing all the green lushness
dripping and shining in the garden, the birdbaths staying full
The robins enjoying their baths in the showers
A delightful sight from my kitchen window
...and right outside my patio door
I can see my new gnome who is riding on an owl
while holding a fishing pole
He looks rather wise, yet playful..devilish actually
So I have named him Stafford.
..conductor of the garden
he's rather cute...don't you think?
