I did enjoy your haiku. Thanks for sharing.

Re Your link-up:-
Is it themed?
Is it a haiku or poetry link-up?

Have a nice week.

Borrowing water is better than going thirsty! (But I do hope she figures out a way to untangle her bucket.)

I loved this Gillena. I don't ever recall getting a bucket entangled but did have to free other garden implements with loving care and provide alternative support where necessary. I thought I saw it grin or was it just the curl of a tendril...who knows?

In life one must react fast before it gets worse! Very true gillena!
