A Funny Old Day



In the middle of winter,
on a rare sunny day,
we went out to the garden
hoping to play.

We got a game going
but all was in vain,
the sky winked at us
and started to rain.

What gorgeous flowers and greenery. Here, winter (in particular, February) is not so pretty. The toys are adorable peeking through the leaves, and your poem made me smile.

Your little critters are too cute, your poem reminds me of yesterday, we went to the park to take a walk and it ended up raining on us, well I should say sprinkling, about 30 seconds after we reached the car it started pouring!

Pam Richardson said...

Amalia, this is so sweet, love the poem! It has poured rain all day, no playing outside!

Amalia, I love your rhymes and your crafts and your whimsical spirit. A visit to your blog is like a breath of fresh air. In fact, it rather makes me think of running through an alfalfa field flying a kite when I was a child!

Dewena said...

What cute little friends! God has been winking a lot in Nashville, Tennessee lately too. I must remember to be thankful for it, better than a drought.

Snowbird said...

Adorable little dolls, Amalia, and I love how you have them nestled in the garden. I can't wait to see rannuculus available here in a couple of months!

Tiane said...

Oh, Amália... what a beautiful images!!!! I love these flowers! I don't know if they are the same but here, we call them ranunculus, and I know that there are similar ones that are not grown here, in Brazil because of the very hot climate, which are called Peonies.
I love the dolls, too!! And the poem!! So sweet!

I do like how you've hidden the felt dolls among the plants …
A lovely poem, but sorry it started to rain.

Wishing you a happy weekend.

All the best Jan

These flowers look just like the ones that I first planted in my garden one year. So bright and colorful, and your poem is delightful, Amalie. We've had sunny days lately, but I'm not sure that Winter is over quite yet. Love that little handmade doll on the last picture. : )

Your whimsical posts always make me smile! My mom loved to buy us small, handmade stuffed toys that were dressed in cute aprons or clothes. Such sweet memories.

Such darling little creatures peering out from the flowers, Amalia! How true your sweet little poem is this time of year. Hope you get more sunshine to play in the dirt, dear friend. Hugs xo Karen

Maggie Ann said...

You lift the heart, as always. I like to visit you Amalia!

Jodiebodie said...

VERY cute! Your garden looks so well-loved and lush. Mine has been attacked by a harsh summer, invading grasshoppers and, I'm afraid to admit, a touch of neglect from the owner because of (in one word) 'life'. Autumn is almost here and it will be cool enough to get out there planting again.
Thank you for inspiring me with your greenery (which seems to have plenty of adorable handmade garden helpers) and thank you for popping by my blog today. xx

Andrea Charles said...

Amalia dear, such a joy when I get to see your poems, it's so cute, short yet meaningful. Those photographs are so brilliant and clarity is amazing. I really enjoy seeing that little stuff hiding between the leaves and pots so adorable �� roses look so healthy and bright. Hope you get to play soon. Enjoy your day !!! Great week. ��.

Oh My God!! These bunnies are adorable! I love the way you hidden them amongst the plants. I showed them to my grandson and he wants me to make one for him now.
