Email to a friend (dreaming of summer)

it's saturday morning. i am listening to kim hill. loud bird noises from outside clamour for attention. your faithful snowdrops, flowering against the front fence. purple and yellow pansys, cheerful in the rectangular pot. its neighbour, rosemary, smothered in small blue flowers. lucy, sleeping amongst straw, dreaming of summer, pays no attention to forboding overcast skies. a handful of blue and white forget-me-nots, proud amid the onion weed. lone yellow freesia, against the garage. fig tree sporting tiny green leaves. bluebells, rocket towards opening. rhodadendron, a mass of cerise pom-poms. birds come and go from the feeding platform, lately invaded by a much too large pukeko. great clumsy oaf!

it seems you have left blackberry picking well behind and are moving on to less romantic and more challenging pursuits. i hope you will take care.

cheers! my friend
