Welcome to the Enclosed Garden of Susan Ernst. Literal as well as figurative, this blog explores the physical gardens which I cultivate, the spiritual garden within, and the intellectual garden of horticultural knowledge gathered through decades of study, observation and practice. Come and sit with me for a while. Let us together marvel at the delicate, intricate beauty of a flower.
Reading Ann Somerset Miles' blog post for today, Weather Sequence, I was reminded of a poem I wrote in 2009. If you appreciate poetry, especially about gardening, you will thoroughly enjoy Ann's work. I encourage you to look at her work. (Click on the link above.)
This poem was written as part of a poetry swap I participated in through the Papermaking Yahoo Group. The criteria was to write an original poem and print it onto your own handmade paper.
