Monday Morning #Haiku 145 — Wild Violets


Shyness overcome,
violets velvet the grey
of February.

  1. 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. πŸ™‚ Happy Monday my talented friend.

    1. You need some flowering pot plants indoors to counteract the gloom, such as African violets, orchids, or hyacinths.
      Happy Monday to you, too πŸ™‚
      PS I’m halfway through the penultimate book on my list before yours.


  2. 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 πŸ™‚ xxxx

    1. 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 πŸ™‚ xxxx

      1. 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… ! πŸ™‚ xxxx

    1. 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.
