Biodiversity so close to home
As the sun shone in the blue sky high above,
I sat in our garden and acknowledged all we have:
Three chaffinches with little red berets, were busy investigating the flower beds,
Red Kites soared high above, playfully riding the warm thermals,
Jackdaws were calling, feeding young, their nest in a chimney top, safe from prey,
Blue tits brave upon the feeder, catch our gaze, chatting amongst the fertile Hawthorne, heavily laden with life sustaining nourishment.
Delicate fern fingers reaching toward heaven, bathing in the suns warmth, growing hearty,
Rosebuds cracking open, a hint of crimson colour,
Young elders, bushy, green,
Buddleia, their purple haze, nectar for our butterflies and bees,
Lily of the valley, scent sublime, tiny droplets of ivory satin,
Carpet of blue Forget- me- nots, I’ll try…..
