although our nights are chilly
the days are tropical n sunny
flowers and fruit have arrived early
so pollen fills the air
a local farm is hosting many hives
so pollination is thriving
what do you grow in your winter garden?
lovely lavender, note the bamboo stakes as the honey eaters were breaking my bush
grey glum and desperate despair
or make your days sunny fun
plant seeds that reap reward
for we all enjoy sweet honey
we are responsible for our own nectar
weather and others can be fickle
decorative leaves of the ginger plant, use it daily
attend your garden gently with care!
