  2. Love the photograph and the accompanying few words you have carefully crafted. The lilies in Colorado have been gorgeous this summer- I'll think of your poem the next time Star and I are out walking and we pass a lily garden.

  3. Yes, what are those green and white things? A lovely haiku, my friend.

    1. Kimberley nailed it -- garlic scapes. Anyone have a good recipe for them? We've got LOTS!

  4. Balance and wildness are essential in gardens and poetry. :-) I've never heard of garlic scapes, so now I'm intrigued!

  5. My lilies are blooming too, but your garlic adds that 'extra' savory, too.

  6. Enjoyed your poem, Mary Lee. Maybe you can freeze your extra scapes in olive oil in an ice cube tray. Works well for chives.

  8. I'm not familiar with garlic scapes, but they remind me of herons or egrets ready to capture a meal. Love your poem and the photo.

  9. Mary Lee - do you like Deborah Madison's recipes? Here's a link to one for garlic scape pesto:

    We put it up and freeze it - tastes like summer right through the winter doldrums.

  10. Looks like "wild" fireworks in your garden. Love "savory and sweet" in my garden and my mouth. Happy 4th! =)

  12. Perfect! That's my kind of garden... and my kind of haiku. :)

  13. Perfection! Your photo (and poem) reminded me of eating stuffed, friend pumpkin flowers in Italy. "Sweet, savory and a little wild!"

  14. You've captured the yin/yang of gardens and flavors - wonderful! And I love Catherines's herons and egrets observation, too! :0)

  16. Love this. Someday I want to figure out how to do this. We need a blogger's camp!

  17. Mary Lee, you captured a July garden so concisely. I like the way the flowers cut across the page. Shall we post this one in the Summer Splashings Gallery that I will speak about soon? That could be #1 and you could write another bold splish splash one if you like in the true Mary Lee fashion. Let me know.
