My little Paradise

One Monday morning,

I decided to do some planting in our little garden

Sun brightly shining, birds tweeting,

Bushes swaying where the nice breeze flowing.

Flowers blooming, potatoes and tomatoes growing

Can't wait to harvest them.

Poppies bursting with different flowers colouring.


Roses doing well, Californian poppies blooming as well

Strawberries growing with fruits nearly ready for harvesting.

Pak choi flowering for next year's planting

My beautiful daisies and lilies bursting with lovely flowers as well

I couldn't ask for more than a nice little paradise like this.


Love to hear the birds singing

The seagulls flying here and there

The blackbirds singing and the crows squawking

The Apple, the pear and the plum trees swaying

What a wonderful day and a wonderful place to be in,

In my little paradise, my own little garden.


The bees are buzzing, the birds keep tweeting, butterflies keep flying

The weeds need weeding and the grass need cutting,

The plants are growing and the seeds need planting

Oh, how I love working in my little garden

What I call my own little paradise.


After a days tiring day

All I want to do is seat and enjoy

the pretty flowers that greet me and gather healthy vegetables

that I needed everyday for my cooking

All these from my secret paradise.








My little Eden

Just wrote this when I was on my day off from work one day. I just feel so at peace and relax when I am in my little back garden which I call my little paradise. Just pottering about and seeing to my plants, vegetables and flowers makes me happy and content. It is nice to have somewhere to chill out after work.

My little Paradise

Have you got a place in your home where you call your own paradise?

      Thank you Jodah, I am not a true poet like you. You write lovely poems, I just had a go to see if I can actually write one. It is one moment of madness for me.

      I really love how you incorporated your gardening into a poem. How great is that. Yes so peaceful and serene to be in a garden.

      I love to watch the big snowflakes fall as well. This also is gives a wonderful feeling inside.

      Thank you for the great words

      Hi! Maureen, I missed you, where have you been? How are you? Mind you, I haven't been writing more hubs to be fair. I can't seem to find any ideas anymore. But I visit my page whenever I can.

      Your poem gives the reader the ability to feel like they are there in your garden with you, helping you with the planting. Very realistic and creative. Nice pictures, too. You have a nice little paradise there.

      Your pictures are poems, and your poem is a collection of beautiful word pictures.
