Thank you, Sylvia 🙂
I would be ecstatic if I saw a flower right about now. I’m wondering if the rains will ever end, or if we are stuck in some Biblical movie. 🙂 Happy Monday my talented friend.
You need some flowering pot plants indoors to counteract the gloom, such as African violets, orchids, or hyacinths.
Happy Monday to you, too 🙂
PS I’m halfway through the penultimate book on my list before yours.
So simply beautiful. It is the little things that bring the biggest joy…
Yes, and those little things all add up into something hugely-overall-beautiful and make one feel all warm and fuzzy inside 🙂
I saw my first wild violets yesterday Sarah – they did brighten up the gloom 🙂
And today, Andrea, I saw the first snowdrops in my garden, too. It’s a good week for flowers brightening up the gloom 🙂
Beautiful…you are definitely ahead of me, my violets are still in bud! But my narcissus are out now, in parts, and my lilac full of buds. If only the sun would shine…your haiku brightens up any grey day dearest Sarah 🙂 xxxx
It sounds as if I’m only ahead of you with violets, and this wasn’t the first clump. There was another one at the beginning of February. But as for narcissus and lilac buds, you’re way ahead of me. I’m so glad that my haiku brightened your day, dearest Sherri 🙂 xxxx
Isn’t that strange? I wonder why some are ahead but others aren’t? Here in Somerset we get daffodils of various varieties up quite early. Must be something in the Somerset air! I loved your pretty violets and delightful haiku dearest Sarah, your posts always brighten my day…and I hope you have a lovely day ahead of you, or should I say evening to come as goodness look at the time… ! 🙂 xxxx
That is a lovely haiku to read in the end of February:)
Since I took that photo on Monday, there are several huge clumps of violets in bloom in my garden now. They make me smile each time I go outside 🙂
I love these first brave flowers of spring 🙂
delizioso e timido haikù delle timide violette
Grazie mille, Annalisa. Sono contento che il mio haiku ha fatto sorridere 🙂
The picture was as nice as the haiku.
I love the violets in my garden. They just grew there on their own without me planting them. They are a wild variety, so the birds must have carried the seeds, or maybe they came on the wind, blown from the nearby woodland.
So,you take interest in flowers too! Nice.
Yes, I love gardening. I am the grower of flowers, while my husband tends to the fruit and vegetables!
