Garden Songs #1
by Lynda McKinney Lambert
Find something to be thankful about today.
Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land. ~ Song of Songs 2:12
morning walk reveals
pink peonies waking up
soft damp rain showers
Bob Lambert is standing beside the blooming Dogwood Tree that we planted nearly fifty years ago. I invite you to visit this blog often and enjoy Lynda’s Little Garden Songs. I’ll be writing poems and stories and sharing photos here on the Walking by Inner Vision Blog.
On this final weekend in May, I walked my two dogs, and I took my camera with me.
We viewed the gardens and meandered along the edge of the woods. We take this route every morning.
Here in western Pennsylvania, the world of nature is vibrant, with the birds celebrating the new day.
Last week, I planted flowers in the area surrounding our Zen Meditation Garden. This is a secluded little haven for the birds.
It took about a week to clean up the debris from a long winter. In a second week, I began to plant the flowers I bought at a local greenhouse.
Besides the flowers, I also bought a new yellow bird feeder, and I placed it on a branch near another ceramic bird feeder that has been there for a couple of years.
A variety of birds found it immediately. It seems like the birds enjoy dining in my Little Flower garden because I have to fill the two feeders up just about every day. Our fly-in-dining for local birds is doing a brisk business.
I do not yet have the flowering hanging baskets hung up because I decided to put one on each of the wood posts on the side of the wraparound porch overlooking the Zen Meditation Garden.
I will have our friend come and put up the graceful brackets where they will be placed. House wrens! How excited we were as we watched Mr. and Mrs. House Wren flying back and for an entire day with little bits of fresh damp moss in their beaks. The Zen Meditation Garden is the perfect place for them to teach their babies to fly when the time comes for them to leave the nest.
Here are a few photos from our morning walk today. I’ll be sharing lots more with you, so please come back again for a visit.
Mitchell walks down the wet sidewalk this morning. You can see rows of mulch and flowers on the sidewalk. These will be planted later this week in the large flower garden on the opposite side of the house.
This is the View of River Road in the rain this morning.

Tell me what you think. I love to hear from you. I’d love to hear about your own garden experiences, too.

not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. ~ Luke 12:27
