Haiku: Oh the sweet yellow

Unmatched spring beauty

Sturdy and among the first

Haiku: peaking green

peaking green slivers

slender and slow to emerge

standing tall will come

Haiku: Belles ring in spring

Virginia Bluebells

Come with the whispers of spring

Blanket the landscape

First VA Bluebells - signs of an early spring

Haiku: Early iris

Bold little iris

Welcome showy blues of blues

Linger till spring comes

Flowers give such meaning and beauty to our lives. The iris got its name from an ancient Greek Goddess who used the rainbow to bridge heaven and earth.

Haiku: Oh deer

Stoic survivors

Gentle herds of herbivores

Wild on the landscape

Tara feeds the deer that visit her property, as well as the foxes and raccoons.


Yes, deer will eat your shrubs and flowers, but there are certain species they will overlook, unless they are starving.  Read up and save your garden.
