Too Much

After a very long grey, wet, winter, spring came up with speed, and then
June burst into flower all over the place …



June woke up three weeks ago              
spread a cacophony of roses
over the Japanese maple
tossed wisteria along the path
rampaged through tall grass
with a wave of seed heads
and blew dandelion clocks
to the horizon

this week
she threatens a lettuce invasion
cornucopias of radish
and a tornado of bugs

    I love this Joanna! Hope you are well.
    I am rediscovering the pleasures in a very small way of going out to pick up a few leaves of lettuce for lunch, in my new small garden.
