November 2018 News from Kruse

Filed under Kruse House

For the final report of 2018 on Kruse House, Keith Letsche, one of the Kruse House Crew, gives us this poetical reflection, written last year, on the end of the gardening season:

 

Cold Snap, November 8, 2017

From high atop their trellises,

the Black-eyed Susan vines have seen

the cold rays of a morning sun that

can no longer climb above the roof top,

and bow their heads in unconditional surrender to

the message of the night.

A lone woodpecker

taps out a knell on the silver maple

in a frantic quest for the lost creatures of summer.

Amid the carpeting leaves

from the weeping trees

only the silly Purple Tower,

feeling invincible in its cast-iron urn,

spreads its thick insensate leaves

in a still joyous expression of immortality.

ENGLISH GARDENS: INCIDENTAL GLIMPSES

Presented by Keith Letsche

In July 2017 one of our Club members, Keith Letsche, spent two weeks touring England. While the tours focused mainly on architecture and history, he managed to snap photos in spare moments of the surrounding grounds of the sites visited. At our next meeting, he will take us on a casual tour through these photographs of the gardens and plantings of about 15 or so of these places. So join us October 25th as we take a glimpse at English gardening.”
