Definition

One must make a distinction however: when dragged into prominence by half poets, the result is not poetry, nor till the autocrats among us can be “literalists of the imagination”—above insolence and triviality and can present for inspection, imaginary gardens with real toads in them, shall we have it.

Open Link Monday

Welcome to the Imaginary Garden ...

Photographs by Ellen Wilson
Greetings to all on this glorious March Monday. Ella sent me several beautiful pictures of daffodils - nothing says Spring quite like the faces of these delicate flowers as they search for the sun. No wonder they have inspired poets and artists alike.

I try not to be first, but I'm wide awake from a late-night popcorn feast, and I'm still thinking of fences from yesterday's prompt. I could not stop myself from posting this one from the archives.

Have a splendid week, Toads and Friends.

You might be first, Susan, but I think I'm second. Unless the mad linky squeezes someone else in between us.

Happy Monday Kerry and Toads!
Thank you for sharing-you make me smile! We had a birthday weekend, prom gown hunt-not Easter egg, and my son came from out of state and spent the weekend with us! I am inspired to write to Margaret's photos~

~Thank you Kerry~

Gail said...

I forgot to say I'm in!

Thank you, Kerry.

Yay for Monday!

Hi Kerry, I hope you are finishing a nice day. It is still morning her, barely.

Thank you for hosting. I like your flower find. The two pictures show that Mother Nature has a better plan for beauty than us humans. The blossoms stand pretty on their plants but droop in the glass.

Kay, I'm the last! Yes, I'm the red caboose, like always~

I will be reading today's offerings and Margaret's inspired challenge!

One that didn't get too many views...or maybe it did and you all hated it. I'll be ok...sniff....

Margaret said...

Ah, the stroke of midnight. Now I'm dragging my pumpkin self off to bed and will return in the morning to visit.
