was simply delightful . . .
The Edwardsville Garden Club ~ circa May 18, 2019
The gardeners visited on a rainy spring day
and toured our grounds on the 18th of May . . .
Bees were busy buzzing about,
pollinating the flowers on their floral route . . .
The gardeners remarked, as they commonly do,
about the blooms that annually appear right on cue . . .
Our path of old brick and cobbled stone
was filled with laughter and a flowery cologne . . .
We're certain that D.D. and Elizabeth watched from above
for their own garden was surely tended with love . . .
This old house was built in 1845 back when
gardening was shared with all the community's kin . . .
We extend our gratitude for time well spent
with The Edwardsville Garden Club, surely heaven sent.
