Allotment haiku #3


White-petal promise.
Dreaming of sweet strawberries,
lawn tennis and tea.

    1. As long as you don’t get too rowdy and put off the tennis players 😉 Alternatively, after a few beers you might decide you’re good at playing tennis and provide some Mr Bean-style entertainment!


    1. My mouth waters in anticipation, every time I imagine the fruit to follow the flowers. And the snails seem to be ignoring these plants, unlike my tomato plants. If only a toad would take up residence in the greenhouse, the disappearing plants problem would be replaced by a disappearing slug and snail success.
