Poetry Pantry #252


Tulips - Boerner Botanical Garden
Milwaukee, Wisconsin







Good day, Poets!

Hope each one of you is enjoying a good weekend. Today I am sharing photos taken at Boerner Botanical Garden in Milwaukee.  We are at the peak of the tulip season right now, and they are quite beautiful.

Tomorrow Sherry Blue Sky has another fascinating interview with one of our newest poets.  I think you will enjoy it.  I won't 'let the cat out of the bag' today though.  You will just have to check back.

And on Wednesday for Midweek Motif Susan will encourage us to write on the subject of "Happiness."  With spring in the air and summer on the horizon, what better topic to inspire!

And, if you haven't read it already, be sure to scroll one page back and read Rosemary's interesting article on the poet Francis Brett Young, one of our 'poetic ancestors.' Rosemary's articles are always well written & give us new poets to enjoy and appreciate.

With no further adieu, hope that you will enjoy the Pantry today.  Leave a short comment when you post; and be sure to visit the links of others.  I will look forward to reading what you share.

  7. And another good morning to each of you! As far as tulips go, they are definitely one of nature's gifts, I think. Perhaps for us here they are a reward for having endured a seemingly endless winter! Enjoy your day & the gifts of poetry we all find here to brighten it!

  17. Hey all! I'll be back to read the rest. Amazing though, how much I am able to get done if I just stay home! Coffee and poetry are wonderful together. Now off I go to a Quaker meeting that just happens to meet at 1:30 in the afternoon! By this time, I can always move. I've already had both a nap and a lunch. Nice day..
