Home Again

Home again to England
and the rain!

It’s cold and wet and windy,
the garden’s overgrown,
it’s far too wet to mow the lawn,

but everywhere is beautiful,
richly lush and green;
I can find no reason
to complain.

    Home has its’ own magic. While it is exciting to explore and visit…it seems our heads enjoy resting on their own pillows. Welcome home!

    Thanks Jules. It was lovely where we were in central Portugal, but yes, it’s good to be home!

    Welcome home dear Libby and family. What a lovely poem you have just written! And Jules I like the part of your comment that our heads enjoy restingmin their pillows… What a surprising way to say how important home is… But it is ever so true… Have an amazing weekend you 2.

    Taking a break, going away is usually exciting with new things to see and appreciate. But, it’s still nice to come back to the familiar.

    Nothing like coming home to renew appreciation for its beauty. And wonderful to have had rain, and not have to worry about mowing the lawn, at least for today. Welcome back Libby 🙂

    This is exactly what my garden looks like after weeks and weeks of rain… quite drowned… yet so much of it overgrown with myrtle, bleeding hearts, violets, etc. that it is still quite lush. It has stopped raining now and my daylilies have just begun to bloom so perhaps I’ll have flowers yet!

    Hi, Libby, I think I got caught up this morning… it must have been a hectic traveling week for a lot of us. Glad you’re back

    loved your comments about the lushness… my friend Eve who is teaching in southern France says she misses the “wild greenness” of England at this time
