Haiku for a green summer

Poetry & Writing

Cow Parsley grown tall

Scent of roadside wild garlic

Drowned Spring yields lush greens

…at least, this has certainly been the case here in Northumberland. Here, an incredibly wet April and May have finally given way to a gloriously hot and sunny June.

Both the cultivated and wild plant life have all responded well. I have even heard one keen gardener tell me that his Himalayan Blue Poppy has flowered for the first time in thirty years! Clearly this is the combination of months of rain to sunshine it requires!
