Secrets of the winter garden

seed heads a (300x400)When you notice the old flower heads
standing untidily in last summer’s garden,
do you wonder if the gardener is lazy;
or, being considerate
of the hungry birds seeking winter food?

the allium planted last fall
gathering itself
to burst forth in purple fireworks
once the bright yellow daffodils
of early spring have begun to fade?

Can you see these secrets now?
