Wow-how lucky are you to have something made by your grandfather. And it inspired such an interesting piece. Great question. Have a wonderful weekend:)

Good one.

That's wonderful Gillena. I have a very old watering can that my Grandfather used in his garden. He passed at 105 years old a while back and had been using it for ever. Somehow it was given to me, probably because I'm in the garden too. Very nice job on your work. Have a wonderful day.

I like it - the image AND the haiku. And the old planter is charming.
Hope your weekend is delightful.

Superb haiku, Gillena, it really resonates at this time of year when there are so many twittering birds in the garden. Your abstracted picture is something quite different, nice work.

Gillena Cox said...

thank you Sheila

what a blessing to have this treasure from your grandfather! love your haiku- I heard birds this morning, but did I come up with such a fine haiku? no, but I'm glad you did.

Gemma Wiseman said...

Delightful little planter. And your haiku is enchanting.

Jeannie Marie said...

It's a charming planter made even more special because the artist himself is your grandfather.
