Blooming Spring!

Pink magnolia tree

The Magnolia tree in the garden is beyond beautiful.

Just look at it!

The petals change colour and shape as their time in bloom draws on…

I love peering between the petals and looking at the carpet of yellow primroses below.

Yellow Primroses

Spring delight! And our pheasant-in-residence agrees!

Pink. Perk. Pert.
Percale. Petal.
Petallike. Metallic.
Shining shy up to the light,
Tiny sheets of round down around.

Slips through fingers,
cool and waxy.
Cups of secrets rooted in
ever-changing shoot stems.
