Wednesday Words: The Garden

The sun filtered through the garden, breaking through the dense foliage.  The twining squash vines sported hearty zucchini, which (as we know) would muscle its way through the other vegetables.

Butterflies were dancing over the blooming lavender and dahlias.  Over in the corner, isolated from the serene garden, were two gooseberry bushes.  Brooding and sour, they knew it was only a matter of time before they would be picked and treasured.

For now,  all was at peace.

  1. Oh, I could feel the sunwarmed earth, hear the insects buzzing and most definitely could feel the peace of the garden.

  7. This is lovely. I remember growing zucchini once, one day we had tiny little zucchini, the next day they were giants. And one bush supplied half the neighbourhood.

  8. Oh, we used to have a gooseberry bush in our garden in Sweden. I had completely forgotten that such a thing exists. As usual, you work wonders with the prompt.

  9. You’ve reminded me, I must go and pick gooseberries.
    If only I knew what to do with them other than make crumbles or jam.
