My Grandmother's Garden

The grip of winter is tight in Maine, cold and windy. Now is a perfect time to share warm memories of summer and childhood.

Lemonade and Sweet Memories

When grandmother's lemonade
Was homemade,
And sipped in her garden by the bay,
Time was just play
On a summer's long day.

Childhood, like blossoms,
Sweet and fragile...

Flower Nation

I held court with roses, and gladiolas,
And I could do just as I pleased.

Oh how delicate this imagination's grand plan...

Boss over all the flowering nations-
Bees that at my bidding, would spread regal news,
Butterflies that amuse.

From My Garden Throne

In an old faded deck chair, I sat enthroned,
Hidden in the back of my grandmother's garden.
Here the sun shone bright and pure,
And from off shore, came an ocean breeze...

My summer was a blue, wide open sky...

Touching recollection of days gone by, images of nature that makes one wonder and be part of them; you have taken us all on a ride back in yonder. Those were the days, indeed! Thanks for this share, Delicia, to bring back nostalgia of childhood, however different it may be for each of us, but still full of love from loving grandmothers - siva
