Truth be told:
we would have no flowers or garden
without Bill and his hard work.
Bill was gifted with a green thumb,
which was nurtured by his mother
(also gifted with a green thumb).
Continually moving & going to eleven schools,
I did not grow up with gardening.
I used to help, when I was able.
However, it is Bill who is responsible
for any beauty here.
With the end of this long, hot summer,
I would like to share some of
these beautiful flowers.
Deep Purple Petunia
Exotic Asiatic Lilies
Rose of Sharon
I am very thankful for Bill,
his efforts, and the beauty
I am able to both enjoy and share
because of them.
Thank you, Bill.
