Say it with Flowers

Wordless Wednesday

A bouquet

P6240020
Peonies season is short and closing.

P6240014
I don’t think I noticed the buds are red when closed before. They looks like a city cousin of Evening Primrose

Inside the bells.

Do you know about, speaking to Ontarians here, name that wildflower? It is sorted by color pages.

Old Things

plates
Most of what exists is without pedigree. How did it come into one’s possession? From where? What makes a 1935 still exist while so much else passes away?

An old school desk gives me a half-mind to refinish it but where would I put it? Life is full and yet more things fit. Flip-flop-flip.

lichen mitt
A torn work mitt shoved on a picket on a whim how many years ago never left again. But why should it?

Breaking old ground

P4110066
Irises, yes?

Sun, warm, and rain and the majority of the snowbanks have gone away.

P4110059
The snow’s vestige.

hopscotch
Kids (of all sizes) were playing hopscotch, skipping rope.

Dogs were promenading in their new haircuts. People on bikes, trikes, longboards, razors, on motorcycles, scooters or in convertibles. Singers were out busking with guitars. People carrying bouquets or sitting on patios inside the new bird song.

Tulips are breaking old ground.

down the street…

in the bank’s planter—
more cigarette butts
than tulip buds

P4110062
On the sunny side of the street, tulips gone feral.

P4110069
Hocus crocus.

buddhas, sign of spring?
Even Buddhas are sprouting.
