Things people grow

Selection of things grown – around the house

Colours Cooking Food Garden Nature Warm



A Zesty colour

sign of the start of spring and summer

daffodils and daisies explode with colour

and marigolds make hay in the morning sun

Lemon sponge sits in the oven cooking slowly

for a farmhouse lunch –

Vanilla custard softly turning in a copper pan

as breakfast is served – a soft boiled egg

with toasted soldiers and yellow butter.

Nature Pleasures Poetry Romance Romantic writing


In response to the latest #Napowrimo  challenge

A collection of flowers

Grown with Care

provides a burst of colour

to anybody’s home


Creating something beautiful

in form and in colour

as Red Tulips meet with White Lilies

and Blue crocus hide ‘tween Yellow daffodils


If looked over by a careful eye

Said flowers will keep – after special days pass by

and if flowers are rooted – and kept in a plot

the flowers will thrive in their own special spot.

Garden Nature Photography Poetry


This poem written by me, first appeared in the forward poetry title : New Beginnings.

I’ve given it a little polish and decided to share – enjoy.


Daffodils, Enchanted Garden, BASIC, Salford


Like their glass friends

The humble garden bulb

Has sat quietly

All Winter.


It’s waited for the signs,

The first melted ice

The dropping snow

or the returning birds


Prepared for the moment

that spring in the air

And that special time

The sun hits the ground


And as those first warm rays

Drop onto the ground

It pops up a shoot

And takes a look round


Then it drinks up the sun

and lets colour – explode!

Giving some beauty

to a home owners abode
