HuMp DaY Haiku - Carolyn's Garden

Carolyn's Garden
filled with blooms and garden art
quiet cousin time

Cousin Paula hosted our "cousin's reunion" this past weekend, close to home in Skagit Valley, a mere 30 minute drive away. We drove back and forth since our little motorhome isn't running well. The reunions are always a good time. We did a lot of visiting, playing with little kids we don't see often enough, eating, more visiting, silent auction, sitting around the fire pit visiting and making 'smores... fun times, even though it was chilly. It was a delightful weekend with the perfect mix of people!

Of course, I took virtually no pictures, even though I had my camera. Sunday morning, when I arrived, it was quiet in Carolyn's garden while the others were making their breakfast. I wandered with my cell phone and took a few pictures. I love the art and flowers in her garden, and isn't the garden shed cool? 

More on the reunion later, but now it's time for HuMp DaY Haiku!  
 
I started doing Hump Day Haiku with Carla Sonheim's Silly classes...  and decided as a challenge for myself, I'd continue.  In this process, I have found that creating a haiku (non rhyming poem with 5 - 7 - 5 syllables per line) feeds my soul. I especially like creating them to go with my photos and art. 

Would you like to share a haiku you have written?

I like that: "Quiet cousin time." Did Paula and/or Carolyn build the garden shed? Nice photos, too, Helen.

I like Carolyn's garden too - love the metal sculpture...
You reminded me how long it's been since I've connected with my cousins.....

I love the photos of your cousin's garden, and also how you split up your Haiku to be the caption of each photo! For a minute there, I thought you hadn't written a Haiku! How clever. You had a wonderful time it sounds like! Sorry to hear the motorhome is sick. Happy Hump Day Helen. xo :-)
