Inaugural Garden 2009...finally

It's a beautiful Saturday and I decided to roll the dice and spend some cash on a few Spring bedding plants from Maple Leaf Garden Centre. I'm trusting that our climate has turned a corner and things won't frost again, killing off these beautiful creatures, the ranuculas and the English daisies - "strawberries and cream".

The view from here
Is like we're on our own planet,
The crabapple planet.
How do we stay attached?
It seems so easy
To let go, give up
The slope's embrace, fall
Into the empty liquid sky.
The curve the horizon
Of the little planet hill,
This hillock of grass and
Daisies flattened
Against the air, looms
A breath away.
