Welsh Poppies

Welsh Poppies
along my fence;
replacing sunbursts of spent


Trampled and broken
wayside daffodils rescued.
Sunshine in a vase.

Here and There

and there
early blooms shine
golden along the roadside.


Crocuses, snowdrops,
primroses and daffodils.
Delicate spring show.


Grey sky, drizzling rain.
The forecast gives more to come,
but look; daffodils!

Green Shoots

Walking around the garden
what do I see?
The trees may still be bare but:
green shoots of daffodils appear
and snowdrops show their first white tips.
Hope of Spring is near.

In My Garden

Garden daffodils

Garden daffodils

A sudden profusion
of golden daffodils
greet the spring sunshine
in my garden.


Welcome Sign

On the roadside verge
a single clump of golden daffodils
looks towards the midday sun —
a welcome sign of things to come.

Sweet Treats?

Crow pecks at
fallen daffodil bloom.
Finding something to eat?

I have probably mentioned before that we have a lovely grassy bank on the other side of the road opposite our house. It boasts several trees and in the spring it has a wonderful display of daffodils. From time to time I go and pick up those that have been broken off, giving them a chance of a slightly longer life by putting them in a vase of water. I collected a few this morning but left one that was beyond hope on the ground. Later when I went out I noticed a crow pecking at it and appearing to eat. I had no idea crows exhibited this sort of behaviour and wonder what it was eating!


fade away.
Crocus bloom brightly.
Daffodils prepare to shine,
