A Loved Garden

Couple of thoughts.
1) I didn't mean to threaten your position as photo-journalist with those pruning pics I put up the other day. Just in case that's why you decided to do this!
2) I haven't written poetry since I was a kid but several, more than several, of your images made me think Haiku. Below. Maybe others will contribute... I'll print out a couple (including that awesome fly, I think!) and send them to Garden Poet Frank Harney to see what he says.
3) These images took a while to load...
4) Speaking of that awesome fly, don't you think it would make a good Plant Vs. Zombies addition? Maybe the "Death Fly Launcher?" I'd sure like to see more stuff in that collection. Or maybe the spruce tips are Viking warriors?
Okay, here goes: You bared your soul re our garden, so here's my poetry:
For the pine needles -- first photo in the bunch:
Riffle the needles
green flecked neat white shingles
scales tip to trouble.
For those sensuous hops vine tendrils
golden fingers hop to it
fine vine dances higher.
The candles extending themselves at the Dwarf Alberta's branch tips:
Bundled spruce needles
stand up, wearing waxed helmets
now toss their hair
For that looking-down shot into the red foliage of the intersectional peony, holey moley:
Float o'er peony
No leaf shades another
Ken spiral secrets
And to describe that brawl between the Angelina Sedum and the wooly thyme (my gosh, the thyme just leaps roight out and makes me feel it!)
Thyme interrupts sedum's flow
wax sunbursts look on.

I also want to have a lovely and blooming garden on my backyard and those are gorgeous photos in your garden and it means that you always do proper maintenance in your garden.

Wow was just going to comment that Steve did a marvelous job doing this photo essay of a spring garden - I didn't know it would turn into garden poetry - nice job Janet...I trust this was either south or some other year as my lungwort has just started to pop but most buds are tightly held. What a nice intro to spring you two - Thanks!

WOW you took really good shots, I like the photos which you shared because these are very colorful and nice. I guess you have good skills of photography as you took these amazing shots. Thanks for sharing.
If at first you don’t succeed, call it version 1.0
