Spring flowers

It’s spring flower time. Photos taken over the last fortnight.

The blackthorn was the first to blossom.

The daffodils have been in flower for a couple of weeks now.

This monumental stack of blue flower isn’t ceanothus but rosemary.

Unforgotten

For Sarah’s language of flowers dverse prompt. Rosemary for remembrance.

 

In the parched garden,

you have left banks of rosemary,

brittle-needled, pungent pins.

I wander there still,

beneath the shimmering sun

with bees and cicadas singing,

wreathed in the oily scent

that clings forever.

Left but unforgotten.

You have planted deep.
