July Muse Day

“July Muse Day”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana

 Today is Garden Blogger’s Muse Day, day to post a poem relating to gardening.

Thanks to Sweet Home and Garden Chicago for starting Garden Bloggers’ Muse Day. 


Crape Myrtle

As lovely as soft bits of  fragile crinkled silk,
These rosy blossoms, clustered thick upon the heavy drooping boughs,
When shaken by a summer wind,
Drop down in swirling showers,
And drift awhile about the ground;
Then gathered into frothy heaps beneath the hedge,
They spread a frill of rosy lace around the green lawn’s edge.

    Hi, Dee. The crapemyrtles have only been in bloom a short while here, too.

    Thanks, Cindy, I thought the imagery in the poem was perfect for crapemyrtle’s bloom time.
