As I sauntered the beach today

 I thought I'd give you a taste of my weekend discoveries

last year's dried up wildflowers were not about to give up their hold
on the landscape

neither were the cranberries that survived the winter onslaught

 however hope springs eternal 
as the wild strawberries pepper the trails 
along my beach walk

back home in my garden 
the sun kisses
the rose coloured epimediums 

and white variety as well

my star magnolia is so soft and warm 
nestled in the corner of the garden

and the occasional raindrops 
hang onto the berry bushes

while late evenings beachcombers discover 
their long awaited joys 
in the sands and waters

I take my place with Miss Pinkie
on the sofa that I call my own
bid you all 
a good night!
