Roses Are Red, Violets Are Blue

Not planned post.

It's rainy, it's ugly, it's gray,
but I went to the garden and saved my day.
I clean, I trim and I pull
... under the rain.
Am I a fool?

I'm sitting now
Checking posts that I've missed
I'm caught in the Web,
but at least not in this:

  1. Hello Tatyana,

    I always enjoy your writing :)

    I love the "I've feel like I have accomplished something" feeling after I have worked in the garden.

  2. That was so cute! Loved that spider web. Who could be a fool in a garden? My husband has no use for the outdoors. Won't say so to him, but I think that's terribly foolish thinking! The outdoors is such an inspiration! (His beloved Sooners lost; now he's snoozing to forget about it!)

  3. What a lovely perspective on this. It gave me a warm pleasant smile. thank you.

    On a side note: I just realized that I haven't become a follower. Why I don't know. I guess I thought I had and then just completely spaced out. What a goof!

  6. Love the colors of the fallen leaves. All those spent blooms are kind of sad.
    Your spider is pretty cool looking.

  10. With Fall and Winter bearing down on us I think we all are getting in our last days of gardening peace before it is all gone.That final look of color that makes us feel good even in the rain.

  13. You were brave to go out in the rain yesterday! It was pouring here. Sometimes it's worth it though to get outside no matter what the weather, it can really clear your mind.

  14. Tatyana, I like your post today. This looks like what I am doing in my garden too. When I see your pictures, I feel like hopping over to your garden to help you and have a chit-chat. I like the mornings when it is fresh and quiet and cool.

  16. What a delightful post, Tatyana! My reason for saying so? The colours of leaves and blooms, the way you've used them, and the simplicity and beauty of your words!

  19. Hi Tatyana,
    I sometimes wonder if I am a fool when I garden in a place with such a short season.
    It is good to immerse yourself in your garden, it is healing and you won't regret the time spent there.
    Rosey P.s. I like these photos.

  26. Hi Tatyana~~ Nope. You're no fool. Gardening in the rain can be very therapeutic, don't you think? I love the weeping hemlock, the stones and the leaves [I almost said petals] in the last photo. That spider is el creep o!!!
