Photo Challenge #268 – Alice Munns


Alice Munns is up early,

She’s out in her garden

Tending to the many plants, she fosters.

Each is known to her,

She chats away to them

Encouraging, singing at times.

Alice Munns is proud of her garden

Her blooms are the talk of the street

She turns the soil with love and care

Her garden makes her feel fulfilled.

Alice Munns pulls away a weed and scolds

“Know your place,” she says

Discarding it to the compost.

Standing back, she surveys the scene

Sighs as she knows as everything

Is as it should be.

Alice Munns loves her garden, and her garden loves her.

    Love the fairytale like feel of your poem.

    I think that repetition of name really makes it. And also the name has a botanical feel to it.

  3. I have 2 black thumbs plants enter alive and die soon after. I feel guilty every time I buy or receive one! I am happy to hear that Alice has 2 green ones instead

    My gardening days are over but I am thinking of getting a bright flower pot for the patio. High winds here and chilly weather don’t lend themselves to beautiful gardens.

  5. I think everyone has come across an Alice Munns at some time or another.

Please feel free to comment, I appreciate your thoughts.
