Dooryard Gardens

Happy times when done within your means.
Overspending can, of course, bring grief.
Mendacious workmen too, who play the thief,
Erode faith when they act like feckless teens.
Raging at injustice makes them laugh.
Expect integrity and you will weep.
Not many have a conscience that would keep
Outrageous overreaching down by half.
Value in the process is still great.
A transformation from a dreary hovel
To a jewel-like place where soon we’ll shovel
Inspiring garden beds due to await
Our joy in planting shrubbery and flowers
Nestled in the dooryard’s leafy bowers.

  3. I'd be glad to pass your expert advice on to the photographer, Ducks, but I have no idea who he or she might be.

    Hopefully he or she will run across this blog and benefit from your expertise.

    I, personally, thought the picture perfectly portrayed the image I tried to convey in the sonnet.

  4. * In future articles, I will discuss additional fingerpicking patterns. guitar center drum off 2011 winner guitar lessons for beginners acoustic part 1 guitar pro 6 tabs martin guitars Voormann kept the Gretsch for the next 20 years, at some point changing the neck pickup. In the mid-1980s, Harrison recalled, Id asked him what happened to the guitar and whether I could have it back, because of its nostalgic value. So he returned it to me, and I had it fixed back in its original form with the original pickup and switches that had been missing from it since he owned it. Today, guitars are most commonly strung with strings made from metals such as nickel, steel, bronze, copper, gold and silver, or from synthetic materials like nylon and Kevlar. Before modern refined materials were used to string guitars, sheep and bull gut (referred to as "catgut") were used. Some guitar lessons on the net are far better than other individuals. Some are not as much very good.
