Disconnections: August 14.18


Zinnias in tatters

petals all strewn

who done the deed?

what marauding poltroon?

When I glimpsed the bright sneak

I recanted my whine

my old friends have found me!

the garden’s more mine.


Please pardon the slight haze, dear reader. I had to nab this shot through the window.

  1. Haze… blur… seems like we’re thinking along the same lines today, not for the first time. I’ve had to make do with hurried glimpses over the last week or so, but it seems the garden is already well and truly yours, as the goldfinch attests.

    • “Making do with hurried glimpses”…I like that. It sure speaks to a lot of life!

      • Something has gone wrong with the way my iPhone views posts. It’s more of a struggle than it used to be. I tried updating the software but it hasn’t really fixed it. I’m not one of those who updates their phone whenever a new one comes out and that’s perhaps the root of it.

  2. My sympathies! All these machines are vast mysteries to me, and I wish you luck trying to figure out what yours is doing. Or not doing, as the case may be.

  3. If we counted all the things that negatively impact our gardens, we’d need more cold beverages. We have rain a couple of times a day, every day. You walk out there, and the ground moves beneath your feet. Then when it stops, the humidity is 99%. Craziest summer weather I remember. Love your snapdragons in the header. 🙂

  4. It sounds absolutely miserable there! Moreso for gardeners. Here I’ve noticed in the last few summers that rain doesn’t change the humidity, and that seems different from the way it was in that ancient past when I was growing up. It used to be that a summer rain cooled things off and made the air wonderful. No more. But still it’s nowhere near as bad here as it is there this summer. Glad you like my snapdragons! (I do too!)
