The Green Thumb

A thumb of green,
You know what I mean.

To produce.
To perfect.

Gardens.
Lush Blooms.

An architect of the soil.
A master of the craft.

Hands.
Hoes.
Dirt Under My Fingernails.



Impatiens...





of coral and white,







I rock.
Daylillies...they bloom right on time. Tick-tock.



Geraniums fuchsia.



Marigolds lemon yellow.
Petunias, I struggle.
Dead heading gets old especially accapella.


A rookie to rose bushes.



I give it a whirl.



In honor of Kenny's Mamaw.



She was the rose girl.



A garden for salads.



cucumbers and tomatoes.



zucchini


squash

I see fruits; I harvest.

Alas, it's all not a wash.



sunflowers



and zinnias.

My favorite for bouquets.


The dog days of summer.
Ahh, these are the days.



A perfectly green thumb?
Well, perhaps not.

But chipped green toenails...
Now, that's what I've got!
