April 21, 2014 hypertufa pot and pedastal 009


Reflecting every photon of light,

Shining clean and pristine

From dawn until touched

Only by twilight and moonlight.

 April 9 2014 buds 067


Almost translucent

silent presence;

April 19, 2014 wisteria 124

White on green

Upon green

Upon verdant newness

Of leaves and grass.


Blackberries in bloom along the Colonial Parkway.

Brightest of flowers

Blooming in the forest:


April 19, 2014 wisteria 067

Dogwood, blackberry, Magnolia,

Mountain laurel, bloodroot

Trillium, Tiarella, turtlehead

Wild rose on thorny stem.

 April 16, 2014 dogwood 007

Moongarden moonflowers

Call me out of doors

On warm fragrant evenings

April 9 2014 buds 082

To sit with the moths,

Watching for lightening bugs

Illuminating the night;

Like white.

April 19, 2014 wisteria 065

  1. Beautiful, WG. We have a lot of white blooming here, too. 🙂

    • Thank you, Robin. I hope your retreat week has you feeling rested, energized, inspired, and ready to move forward on the journey 😉 I’m looking forward to seeing your posts now that the garden is really coming to life! Hugs, WG

  2. I’m happy that someone else also observed white. I love the contrast it adds to all landscapes and gardens.

  3. Just lovely. You take the most stunning photographs! I love the poem too – especially the moonlight and firefly stanzas. Blessings! Sarah

    • Thank you so much Sarah. So nice to know you enjoy it. I hope it inspires you to go out and enjoy your own garden in the evening. I’ve been planting a lot of white and silver in the garden this spring because I love how they glow. Best wishes! I hope you have a good weekend and find some fun 😉 Blessings and hugs to you, WG

  4. Beautiful photos and poem, Elizabeth! Your words are as sweet as a Spring breeze through the trees, your forest garden blooming with life, awakening our senses. Thank you for sharing, my friend 🙂 Hope you have a pleasant weekend!
