Unfurling...



soft catkins emerge

lilac leaf buds swell with green

spring is unfurling.

You're welcome! I also had a photo of the lilac leaf buds, but it wouldn't load! I'm going to try again later. I'm so glad you came back to visit.

Oh, these are beautiful springtime images. We are so far behind you that it will be weeks until there are flowers in bud or blooming. It's lovely to see them here, thank you!

Cate, I'm glad you came by to see them then. Our spring was a little later than usual this year, but I'm so glad to have things blooming now. Spring will be beautiful and very welcome when it reaches you there in your highlands.

Love the Haiku, Aisling, without the beautiful pictures I can see the images. And love the word "unfurling". I keep saying it over and over and like the sound of it.

Robbin, I like "unfurling" too. It reminds me most of fiddlehead ferns, which are all coiled up and slowly unroll in the late spring. Words are fun, aren't they?

Thanks for your nice comment on my haiku. I haven't written one in a while, but the pretty day inspired me.
