Winter haiku #1

WinterPinkShrub

Early morning light.
Amidst darkened scapes and twigs,
winter flowers bloom.

    1. Not wishful thinking. I posted those flower pictures on the day I took the photos. We have a microclimate where I live, which although wet at the moment, is seasonally at least a month ahead of the rest of the UK. I even have a palm tree growing most robustly in my garden!

    1. It’s so beautiful the weather here today that it has even tricked my huge resident bumble bee out of hibernation in the rockery. I wanted to take a photo of him, but he wouldn’t keep still for a moment in his excitement over the sunshine!

      Yes, optimism is good in January 🙂
