Rest and Renewal

Ellen Grace Olinger

I am blessed by the seasons in our perennial gardens.  I like the photos at this time of year as much as when different plants flower through the spring, summer, and fall. I took this photo of one of the daylily gardens yesterday.

And a look back at the daylilies this year – always nice to visit the archives too.

Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin

longer still
since my father’s
passing when I was

his parents came
here from Sweden
a long time ago

we called them
Nanna and Poppa Ernie

many conversations
we never could have
yet he too is with me


for Harold A. Borgh (1915 – 1983)

Poems From Psalms And Nature

November Wisconsin countryside
Bare trees elegant against the sky
Colors in the landscape muted now
October’s glory is gone
And love grows eternally
