Spring flowers

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

Vibrant celandines
contrast with purple heart’s-ease
making spirits rise

Meeting

Daffodil and Snail
banana cake and coffee
laughter in sunshine

My first ever Haiku – to celebrate spending time with the wonderful Wild Daffodil. Many thanks to our mutual friend, Linda (who doesn’t blog, but wants to… one day) for providing the opportunity for us finally to meet in person. And for making the cake and coffee! And lending us each a hat.

Daffodil and Snail... in the pink!
