My front garden is lovely in the spring. The remnant of an old wildflower meadow, it still contains beautiful flowers. We only cut it a couple of times a year to maintain the native species. This year, I’ve added three soft fruit bushes to make it a little more productive. Plus, when I was feeling blue, my friend Ann gave me some of the Viola known as heart’s-ease and I’m planting those too.
And, inspired by Wild Daffodil, a spring flower haiku
contrast with purple heart’s-ease
making spirits rise
