Haiku Entwined Blossoms

Updated on May 11, 2013

Good day one and all ; I have have been bitten by the crafty bug lately and love taking photos and then experimenting with various themes ; my favourite site being "Photomania".

Therefore what better way to spend a Saturday morning than to create images alongside poetry.

We only have a small paved patio as a garden but we grow flowers,shrubs,fruit,vegetables etc in pots.

We also have a well stocked bird table, feeders which are kept full and are visited by so many birds each and everyday.

The final five Haiku titled "Sweet garden of love" are all about our mini garden which we created in memory of my beautiful sister Val who passed over in 1999 and my sweet loving daughter Erin who tragically passed over in 2009.

To those of you who are new to my hubs I must explain that we planted four plants ;A Rock Rose; a Hebe; a Forest Flame and an Azalea.

The Rock Rose very soon out grew and overcame the others and this is what led to me calling my sweet daughter Erin "My Beautiful Rock Rose" as she had to be the star of the show wherever she was!!!

She was such a wonderful kind,caring and lively soul as well as being so very beautiful and I have a book of fifty poems published with the title being "My Beautiful Rock Rose."

I hope it helps others along their way and I love to sit out here and allow the inspiration to flow over me. I also know they are both with me in my heart and by my side for eternity.

The garden is not a sad place ;it's a place of great beauty and where the most wonderful memories dwell.

Treasured memories of my two angels of love.

I also have so much fun with my grandchildren out here ( eleven at the moment but soon to be thirteen ) and it's usually the setting for so many treasured and precious photos.

I also love the music of Pan Pipes and came across this video of 'Unchained Melody' which is one of my all time favourite songs.

I hope you all enjoy .



Pink makes the boys wink

Clematis immersed in joy

So happy so bright.



Enchanting Blue Bells

Soft delicate aroma

In fresh abundance,



Regal Daffodils

Sprinkled gems of royalty

Our Welsh emblem.



As pure as Snowdrops

Mother Nature's creations

Fragile as white lace.



In virginal mode

Stands my Queen of Delphiniums

Such a silent strength.



Array of colours

Each primrose a sensation

Caressing heartbeats.

Poached Egg Plant.


Bright and fun loving

A sweet chuckling Poached Egg Plant

Lifting those dark clouds.

Red Rose.


These deep Red Roses

A gift from the heart of love

Clear message to bloom.



As straight as pokers

Pink and blue or blue and pink

Each Lupin stands tall.



Happy Buttercups

A child's voice from yesteryear

"Do you like butter ?"

Passion flower.


Great Passion Flower

Mesmerising enchantment

Uniquely wondrous.

Sweet garden of love.

Our beautiful mini garden.
Our beautiful mini garden. | Source
Erin My Beauitful Rock Rose.

Val and all the prizes she won for her beautiful singing voice.
Val and all the prizes she won for her beautiful singing voice. | Source

Sweet garden of love

An extension of my heart

For eternity.



Beautiful Rock Rose

To cherish eternally

Leads straight to my heart.



Free flowing Hebe

Oh so wondrous to behold

Clear message for all.

Forest Flame.


Such tender passion

Wondrous contrast soft yet clear

A Forest Flame blooms.



My sweet Azalea

In an almost coy fashion

Such a deep feeling.

Beautiful world.

Just open your hearts

See the beauty all around

Precious and treasured.

      Very impressive - beautiful photos - a wonderful tribute to your daughter and sister.

      Bluebells are my favourite from childhood followed by snowdrops, buttercups - clearly remember 'do you like butter?' Lupins and primroses.

      Lovely memories - thank you

      These are lovely flowers! And pictures of your beloved, too. You have a knack for sharing the beauty of your world! "Pink makes the boys wink" ...I love that line. I love azaleas, but they don't love me; they make me sneeze! They were all over the town we just moved from, along with dogwood and wisteria. Beautiful, and looked forward to their blooming even with allergies.

      It's so nice to hear how you celebrate the life of your daughter and your sister with flower. Just beautiful! A garden of peace must be a nice calm place to find inspiration! Beautiful poetry!

      I can see that you have fun with all your pictures and your program. Did you give a kaleidoscope effect to the first one?

      Enjoy your weekend!

      Eddy I love what you've done with the photos in this one. The buttercups remind me of my childhood. We'd hold the flower under our chins and if the yellow was reflected that meant you liked butter.

      Thank you for the beautiful poetry and sparking wonderful memories on this Saturday morning.
