Lavender Roses

Lavender roses and columbine
in my garden they call home
are content in their rooted destiny,
rejoice in release from dark soil

At sunrise on my own accord
I walk outside to smell their sweetness,
the flowers meditate with me
and teach me their scented dharma

Columbine that grows like wildflowers in my yard

    1. Thanks, Jazz. I bought one plant of columbine several years ago and now my yard is full of them. Most are purple but I do have some pink and some white. I have no idea where they all came from, but they are such a blessing when they pop up. I appreciate you stopping by and commenting.

    1. Aren’t they wonderful! I bought one plant years ago and now the whole yard is full of them for a brief time in June. I love the ‘wildflowers’ that I don’t have to attend to but still shine in all their glory. Thanks for stopping by, Sabine.

      1. Yes! Cherries are just starting to appear at the market! 😉 I didn’t make any last year, but will this year. I saved the drained cherries, dipped them in melted dark chocolate and then froze them. They made great little dessert bites. I’ll have to write about it sometime! 😋

    1. I haven’t either! I got that phrase from talking with a friend in my writer’s group. So when I was looking for a graphic I found this one of pale pink roses and did an adjustment in PaintShop Pro to give it a blue overlay to make them look lavender. It is really just a whimsical idea – lavender roses. I love my columbine, too. I cannot believe how they spread and I am not about to stop that! Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts.
