Change in the weather

Salford, 28th August 2020

The bird’s seem to have got the message

The mercury is in retreat

A nip in the air – you’re feeling

As you’re heading down the street

Clouds of grey are gathering

waiting for their time

to sprinkle their raindrops down on the ground

blocking out the sunshine

And while cold air for autumn

seems to be the norm

our feathered friends have headed off

someplace tropical and warm

Don’t Fret though – as soon as the sunshine burns

those feathered friends, who flew off will return

land with little uns – who will have grew

onto a patch of green grass nearby you

Orchid

#cyw #orchid

Over time the orchid plant

Releases the colour hidden away in its stems

Crafting flowers of such beauty, you would have thought

Heaven’s angels had crafted each one

It takes time to grow an orchid with such colour and beauty, but its

Definately worth every second waited

Mountain Meadow

Mountain Meadow created by inky

Mountaineer came

out of his wintry cave, the summit conquered

up on the top of the hill, had been nothing but snow, but

now those seeds sleeping under the snow had

torn through the safety of the soil

and provided a lovely view for the climber to see

in time, he’d enjoy the fruits of his triumph, but for

now he was enjoying – his first sight of spring

Mauvelous

Salford, 19th June 2020

#CYW

Maybe, you would call it purple – but there’s definitely

a shade or two of pink hiding in this colour

unless you were looking at it really close up –

very few would succeed to match it up

except of course the guys or girls at the wallpaper warehouse – who

like mixing up the reds blues and yellows

of course you spot its pinkish hues up by fellow plants

up in the garden

shades of pink popping up the yellows, purples and blues

Watchers (Image by SC Vincent)

Family sit on the bank,

they’ve been doing this for years

keeping an eye out for their neighbours

providing cover from the atlantic wind

for the plants, and sometimes an animal or bird

and giving shade to the pretties in pink

their reward for this task

watching the breakers

coming in to the shore

Wildflowers

Salford 17th April 2020

A Spot

by the big trees became vacant recently,

considering the weather, i cleared the space and

dropped some the seed into a channel….no

expectations – i just need to water them during the day

flowers ? they’ll all be different and some you might

go and consider them as weeds in another garden – i just

hope they grow in the hard trowelled soil they’ve been buried in and

in turn, the birds find the bugs and not the seeds!

Potpourri

Petals

of perfection

taken and mixed up creating

perfume

of

unforgettable nature

releasing fragrances of

roses and begonias and lillies

in the front room

Bluebells

#writephoto #bluebells

Bluebell wood : Writephoto prompt by S.C Vincent

Brushing against the flowers in the carpet of blue

listen out for the chimes as you walk

usually, you wouldn’t hear them

except – on this occasion – there’s only the

birch trees – and they’re not saying much

even the squirrels are being quiet –

listening to the noise of the bluebells as they

lightly sway in the

spring breeze

Hot Magenta

#CYW #HotMagenta

Salford Street sign – in Hot Magenta

Its not what you’d call a subtle colour

and it couldn’t be called pink or purple

a fiery marriage where red meets blue

but mother nature seems to like

using their off spring to bring a bit

of eye catching colour to the garden

look around you’ll see it every where else too

in signs, on walls and in windows

the future’s bright – the future’s …. Magenta

Fuschia

#CYW #Fuschia

watercolour from stock art of fuschias

Floating in the warmth of summer

under their pink ballerina dresses – purple petticoats

swaying in the gentle breeze

colour to brighten up anyone’s day

hard to miss – even though they try to be

incognito

a wonder for visiting birds and bees
