Summer Garden Haikus


The sunflowers are in full bloom . . .

A glowing face beams
Waiting for the buzzing bees
swirls of new seeds

He loves me, he loves me not . . .

. . . while my little rabbit causes some trouble!

Sunflower petals
Zucchini, cucumber bites
My tummy is full

Bad bunny! Next thing you know, he’ll be stealing the seeds!

Where did he get the knife?? I better keep the zucchini and cucumbers hidden from now on!

  1. Be glad bunny left you that much! But i’d worry about the knife. All we need is an army of bunnies carrying weapons when they raid the garden. The wascally wabbits ate half of my three ripening tomatoes. I’ve managed to get about five cucumbers and six squash before the rabbits got them. But it’s not as bad as at my friend’s garden where the deer ate all the pumpkins, all the butternut squash, the birdseed and the bird feeder and the hummingbird feeder. I didn’t know deer had a plastic/petrochemical deficiency that had to be fed.
    I love the sunflower photos….sunlight on a stem, for sure.


    • Lol! I’ll be sure to hide all the knives! πŸ™‚

      Deer will eat just about anything. I remember my grandpa coming up with inventive ways to keep them out of his garden in Wisconsin. I’m glad you were able to save a few delectable vegetables before anything ate them!


    • My camera and I had fun that day. πŸ™‚

      I left the bunny out of one post and boy did I hear about it. Lol! It’s fun to give him a little story – who knew the garden would grow a plot along with vegetables!


  2. Gorgeous photos! Nothing is growing in my garden this year – BOO! Never got around to planting, going to be gone for much of the summer and it’s scorching hot. Next year for sure!!


    • We’re planning on it. πŸ™‚

      In the next two weeks or so, we are going to take out the summer garden and till the soil for a month in preparation for the fall. Everything should be fried by then (and done producing)!

      We’re hoping to plant pumpkins, melons, and maybe onions.
