Garden Blogger's Muse Day


First Snow

Snow makes whiteness where it falls.
The bushes look like popcorn balls.
and places where I always play,
Look like somewhere else today.

Marie Louise Allen


Join Carolyn Gail's Garden Bloggers' Muse Day! Post a poem on the first day of each month. Head for Sweet Home and Garden Chicago to look around.

Love the simplicity of this short but true poem!

I just love snow and I'm still waiting for more than a flurry. This poem is nice.

Hi Shady,
Now is the season for the snowy remains of the garden, eh? That's a fun poem too, and so true!

Looks like we're in for more of the white stuff on Wed...predicting 3-5 in. here and "locally heavy amounts" down more your way in the state. Stay warm, we're in for a cold rest of the week they say!

Shady Gardener said...

Hi Kathleen! We'll be outdoors playing again before we know it. :-)

Thanks for visiting Naturegirl. :-)

Lisa, You are a rare one... though I know what you mean about loving the snow!

IVG, Good to see you out and about! It'll be fun to see more snow tomorrow. Hope it falls in the ditches and not on the road. I have a busy day tomorrow! ;-)

Yup. I've got popcorn balls all over my hydrangeas today as well. Maybe I should put a movie in, get some pop and......

I've added your blog to my blog roll. I'm slowly recovering from my computer crash over the weekend and catching up on where I'd left off.

Later,

troutbirder, We're in for about 5" of snow today... so a movie, popcorn & hot chocolate sound wonderful!! I even have knitting to do! (Christmas presents - don't tell anyone.) lol

Cameron, Great, I'm honored to be on your blogroll. Computers! Can't live with them; can't live without them! ;-)

Deb, Short and sweet for certain! We're getting a lot of snow today. I was out this morning and drove about 40 mph all the way home. I'm staying "put" for the rest of the day! :-)

This poem always makes me hungry! Hello, winter. At least it looks pretty.

Shady Gardener said...

MMD, ha! :-) It does look pretty. Did you receive more snow today? We've received about 3-4" with the forecast for another 1-2" yet tonight. I leave for Omaha tomorrow! :-)

Gail said...

Hi Shady! I am way behind on visiting. Hello you! Love 'snow makes whiteness where it falls'.

Enjoy your snow and popcorn ball bushes!

Jingle bells, Santa smells... oh, wait no. I did write a song about hating buckthorn... maybe I'll post it next month!

TGF, It's really like another place today, out there where I like to play! ha. Plus it's very slick under all the snow we've received today. Guess I'll be indoors for a few days. :-)
