A Question of Time

Why do other people’s gardens
always look better than mine?
With flowers in bloom whatever the season,
they’re dug over and weeded, planted and pruned.
I have to admit there’s a simple reason —
it comes down to a question of time.

    Right there with you. I love to garden but when I get home from work I would rather write or read a book.

    A questionof time… Lovely poem Libby. Could apply to me as well. But you know perhaps the other people admire your poetry and silently think, I wish I could be able to write something as beautiful as a poem… But where do I find the time? You are perfect as you are, Libby!

      Catherine you are far too kind, I could say the same of so many others. I only wish I was as good as you make me out to be, just occasionally I get a glimpse of inspiration! Time, unfortunately, is often in short supply.:)

        What is time, dear Libby, your glimpses of inspiration reveal themselves to be of an outstanding quality…
