As sunlight breaks through the old oak’s branches, streams of white light flood the garden and
Marigolds glitter reflecting dew drops as spider webs trace intricate designs throughout the buds and flowers and stems and stocks.The roses show translucent petals of individual color: cream and fuchsia and orange and yellow. Spears of Russian Sage glow violet held long and straight by the surrounding patch of purple Echinacea. The garden populations stand super-sized and healthy after a spring of cool days with rain and hot sunny summer days ending in thunderstorms. I sit on the deck observing and drawing the healthy, vibrant pink geranium planted in a terra cotta pot while an emerald green Hummingbird assesses the Oregano in the nearby herbs. A most beautiful morning with no rain on Walnut Street.
