Garden Poetry

this is the garden:colours come and go,
frail azures fluttering from night's outer wing
strong silent greens serenely lingering,
absolute lights like baths of golden snow.
this is the garden:pursed lips do blow
upon cool flutes within wide glooms,and sing
(of harps celestial to the quivering string)
invisible faces hauntingly and slow.

this is the garden. time shall surely…

Hi Sean,
Thanks for the link, ideas are starting to come together as to what kind of hive and where to put it or them. I like the idea of the comment that if you attend the course then you get a starter colony of bees. We used to put up catch boxes and a feral colony would just move in after a while but there are no feral colonies left here now.
Thank you very much for hosting us at the last meeting, I really appreciated the afternoon and the tea and eats. It was good to go around your garden see what you are doing and glean some ideas.

Hi Sean,

Thanks for the link, will look into it. I actually had a bee-keeper over to look at our property with a view to keeping a hive but she said nowhere would actually be suitable :( Anyway, sorry to have missed the last meeting at your place. As it turned out I had to work Sat instead of the sunday! My garden is currently dry and lacking in nutrients and looking drab! Need to get some time and get out into it...

Hi Sean, yes I still have borage seedlings and more are growing. However of the white borage I have only adult plants left but luckily one of them is in a pot and can thus easily be taken. Otherwise, plenty of flowers to take seed from. I don't know what you have for exchange but am happy to just give away ... a look around in my fledgling garden and maybe some tips regarding problem areas is however always welcome. Just send me an email via to arrange for a time and such like. Thanks SIlja

Thank you!
Typically I go looking for cheese and come home with an eye on yoghurt and desert. How are you doing on the local food front? Did you manage the Grey Lynn Farmers Market?
