Planting with Natives

twenty years from Texas
and still the itch to set out
winter tomatoes
transplanted gardener’s gaze
forlorn on wind-whipped snow-fields

  1. I like the line flows in this–and “transplanted gardener’s gaze.” Is it the gaze or the gardener that’s transplanted (and forlorn) or both? 🙂

    I lived in Dallas as a child. I didn’t garden then either, but I was transplanted, and then transplanted back more successfully back north.
