Plethora of greens
Embrace the dryad in you
Breathe that verdancy
I’m embracing it! It always seems so lushly green at this time of year 🙂

Funnily enough, I thought of you when I wrote this haiku, Andrea, knowing how much you enjoy walking in woodland like this 🙂
Too hot to embrace anything outside. But my African violets in the kitchen are ready to bloom. 😉 Lovely haiku.
You just have to think of all those cold grey months to appreciate that heat now! We’re having some sunny days, but there has been a continuous cool wind for the last week, and on one occasion a howling gale that tipped over all my pot plants overnight but without any lasting damage. I have some African violets in my house, too. They’re very pretty plants.
Most of the weekend, I’ve been out of doors, which has done me some good but made me even more behind than I was before.
I’m glad you liked the haiku 🙂 That photo was taken in the woods at the top of the road where I live.
All best wishes,
Where I live is called The Evergreen State because of our abundance of firs and cedars…..green for everyone, all year…this haiku should be the state haiku….you are entertaining and talented, a very nice combination.

Such a coincidence of timing, considering we live across the Pond from each other … while I was off visiting your blog, with its lovely green background, you were busy commenting on my green haiku! The greenery in my photo is mostly deciduous. I’m not sure that there are any fir trees in those woods but further up on the download slopes, there are a few conifers. Hey! Perhaps someone will commission me for a state haiku. Wouldn’t that be fun? I think the US and the UK need a “state” something at the moment that has nothing to do with politicians and stands for greenness of a positive rather than negative kind.
Lovely to live close to this wood. I do especially love the second line xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
It is so, so, so green where I live. I have green walls in the room where I work and my desk is at a big window overlooking a garden with every shade of green foliage, plus lots of bright flowers, and then there are some houses behind me, with the woodland trees towering over them. Lots of birds and wildlife visit from the woods, too, but no dryads yet xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Lovely lovely. We live near the sea. Very different that way but isn’t it lovely to be near nature that way xxxxxx
We live by the seaside, too, with woodland leading up to the South Downs to the north and sea to the south, so lovely views in both directions xxxxxxxxx
I am always ready to embrace my inner dryad! 🙂 This span of time is definitely my favorite of the year: verdancy ascendant…
Now that doesn’t surprise me, Sunshine. I can definitely see you embracing that inner dryad 🙂 I adore this time of year.
I also really enjoyed the 2nd line. My day would not have been well ended without the word ‘dryad’ and it was a nestled and cosy sort of growing/glowing green. By the way, I came by because of Shey’s post. 🙂 Nice to meet you…
Hi, nice to meet you, too, Ka 🙂 Dryads are so cool. My daughter used to spend many hours climbing trees and pretending she was a dryad in the hope that she would become one. I also used to date a fellow that was a bit of a tree-hugger and liked to commune with dryads. He was a bit strange, but anything is better than boring.
Let’s here it for the dryads…Let’s do the dryad dance . OOOHHHH
Should we be as manic as the ones in this video and go upset a water nymph? 😉 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K3VraQK9Pgo
So very cool and refreshing. Especially on a day like yesterday where we hit 33 C with a humidex of 40…
Yes, it was quite hot here, too (about 27 C), which is why I decided to retreat into a cooling place for my haiku!
A very peaceful haiku just what you need some days
Thank you 🙂 I always find it peaceful writing haiku, so am thrilled if I can pass that feeling of peacefulness on to those who read them.
Ahhh… you know how I love to breathe such verdancy as often as possible. Beautiful as always dearest Sarah… xxxxxxx
Thank you, dearest Sherri xxxxxxxxxx
