dressed in their best

summer afternoon in

grandmother’s garden

follow sunlit pathway

strawberry blonde girl

clutches watering can

to sprinkle flowers

her smile like daisies

picked by chubby fingers

her cheeks reflect color

of bright hair bow and

bold rose briar blooms

garden and granddaughter

both cultivated, well-groomed

portrait of fresh youth

wholesome in nurture



Girl with Watering Can – Renoir

    The world where all is well and wholesome and privileged – a perfect description of the Renoir painting. I used to adore his work when I was a child – it’s got that kind of bright glow which appeals to children, doesn’t it?
