Mindful writing — the art of paying attention
perhaps the rain though gives it nourishment until you can get there...if it does not wash it out....though i guess it feeds the weeds as well...smiles.
All of the above. It's been raining for weeks.
may the sunfind yousoon
Sweet! Thank you. :)
Make the most of it and put your feet up.
Yes, it's that kind of day. The only problem is, it's one of a whole chain of such days. :(
I hate those rainy and soggy days ~ Good one ~
Soggy is the right word!
Sounds miserable, Rosemary! I hope that rain stops soon.
The people of the east coast of Australia thank you! :)
Rosemary, you've summed up the weather here in Sth East Queensland perfectly and my garden is the same,and the little dog is as miserable as the weather...no walk for days. Can only hope we get that usual nice autumn weather soon. :)
Yes, you would understand perfectly. I am in north east NSW where it's much the same.
...ah...i feel you as mum would often be like that... too worried & bothered about her garden when it rains outside... she would often look through a window just so she knew how her garden was doing... smiles... i enjoyed your verse..
I am no gardener, though. I just like to sit in it and enjoy. It's a case of transference: really it is I who miss being in my garden.
oh I miss my garden too. can't wait for spring! You did a great job with keeping it short and sweet. you said it perfectly :)
:) Thank you.
Oh the rain will do that!
It's done a lot of it here, lately.
Beautiful-- the forlorn, soggy quietude of a rainy afternoon. Loved the word choice of 'stranded,' suggesting, without stating it explicitly, that your home has become the only bit of dry land in a sea of endless, drowning rain. It makes the reader feel or the more sorry for the poor plants in the garden, trying to tread water in all the downpour.Hope the sun finds you soon! :)
Thank you for such an attentive reading. :)
yeah the rain does keep us inside, at least it does for me, can't stand rain. in fact, I often feel like the wicked witch, even joking that I'll melt lol The garden will miss you, as my dad, who's a big gardener, makes comments like that a lot, but the rain probably helps out the plants, as long as it's not for an extended timeframe. nicely done. Thanks for sharing with us.
You're welcome. It has been for an extended time frame, but we live in hopes. Some of the plants do appear to have had a growth spurt.
oh and it sounds like not only your garden misses you but you your garden as well..and the sunshine...here's to many sunny gardening days for you rosemary
Spot on, Claudia, thank you.
Perfect picture. Not a gardener (or least inclined that way), you nonetheless took me to a place of envy of such love. Good morning !
Good morning, Sabio! I am no great gardener either, but I miss being able to spend time there.
It misses you, but I bet you miss it more! I know I do.
I feel for you Rosemary. I'm trying to remember the last reasonable summer we had - I can't :-(
Yes ... I don't think climate change is a myth!
I love my garden - it is nothing special - but am not to happy once the grass starts to grow...Anna :o]
I am lucky that someone else does my mowing.
ah..spring is just around the corner ;)
In my case, autumn has just begun. But so far is no improvement.
you miss your garden more than it does!:)
Would you kindly send some of that rain out to us in drought stricken California and Nevada. Our gardens are thirsty.
Would be only too delighted — and even to some other parts of Australia, which have been suffering fires and drought.
