Poetry Praising the CHARLESTON GARDEN

SATIRE COMPOSED: Giorgio Coniglio (registered pseudonym) and Dr. GH, 2018. Today's offering has been inspired by Mother Nature's wonderful displays, aided by ingenious garden designers who took advantage of the favorable climate in coastal South Carolina. The author has had the good fortune to be able to serve as a docent for the March 'Glorious Garden' Tours organized by the Historic Charleston Society.
Today's verses have all been through the extensive editing process at the cooperative poetry and humor site OEDILF.com (the Omnificent English Dictionary in Limerick Form). The illustrating photographs, unless otherwise indicated were obtained on GC's iphone 7, and processed using Powerpoint software.

You may like to look at the enlarged illustrations. Click on any slide to get into the enlarged photos, navigate about via the thumbnails at the bottom, and then exit by clicking the little 'x' at the upper right!

The above verses conjure up visions of tranquility, beauty, wonderment and pride as a part of gardening. The reader is warned however that more negative emotions such as dismay, victimization, and revenge may derive from forces, random, natural, man-made and sometimes self-inflicted, that detract from our attempts to surround ourselves with 'natural beauty'. That said, you can read about these more negative aspects on the post 'Naughtiness in the landscape: Garden Intruders'. Click HERE !
