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

Where discerning toads gather...

Good day to all the toads who grace this garden. The first of September heralded Spring in my part of the world, but it signals the Autumnal season for most of our members and regular visitors. Ellen Wilson has shared a few more photos with us today.

I have two things for you today, Kerry. First the post on the linksy above which still needs some tweaking for vividness, and second a Labor Day thought or two at my other blog. I'll suggest the link under the poem.
