I Saw Sunday Week 39

For I Saw Sunday Week 39


Sister’s backyard is summer
refuge for flowers, both wild
and domestic. Guarded throughout
by critters imaginative, colorful,
and sometimes surreal.

Yet, always wears feeling
of warmth and welcome.

Hope you come and join us and tell us what you have encountered during your week.

    What an array of guardians! That last picture of the overflowing wheelbarrow with the flowers tumbling out of it is lovely.

    • Thanks Earlybird, I had taken one much closer because there are two guardian frogs sitting in front of it, but I love that wheelbarrow of impatiens, so you got the long shot.


  2. What a wonderful and magical garden! :o)

    • Thank you Deborah, it is the one thing I really envy my sister about. It is her entire backyard and even though I go regularly, there’s always something new to find in the nooks and crannies. I can and do sit out there for hours,


  3. Love the tumbled over wheelbarrow with the cascading flowers and you have really captured the feeling of sunlight in these photos. Isn’t it wonderful to see! I hope your Sister has recovered well.

    As always thank you so much for sharing these with I Saw Sunday. x

    • Lol, we had three days of dingy clouds, thunderstorms, and dropping temperatures a day after these photos were taken. My sister is recovering very well, enjoying her backyard and obviously busy decorating it. She had her four year old granddaughter this week and took naps right along with her. Smart woman.


  4. Ena

    I’m in love with those little frogs. So cute! 🙂

    • She has lots more but I’d have had to do three or four posts to contain them all. Everyone knows how much she enjoys these things so she has an endless supply of new ones given to her as gifts. I love her backyard. And thanks again for your beautiful poem, Ena,


  5. A garden of delights. So much more interesting than a regimented garden with rows of plants and no soul.
