Blowing in the wind...

Growing between the concrete step and the concrete path - three bunches of dandelions!

At the edge of the field

At the edge of the field: the "hiding in a hedgerow in my childhood" scent of hawthorn blossom.
Yellow anthers in the centre of small white petals.

We thought she said *passion* flowers

Pasque flowers - their Mountbatten pink heads closed - cloaked in silver mist

In the garden...

In the garden
burying her head in chives
our agoraphobic tabby cat!

After a hard winter

Green dried out and died :variegated browns, and black and white mold on the rotting palm.

Looking out the office window.

The shadow the downspout casts against the rough red/orange brick wall of next-door's house, like the shadow of tall dark pines on the distant hill, is almost plum-line straight: its edges follow the bumps and grooves in the wall's surface - from the gutter to the drain.

On the lichen spotted paving slabs
discarded leaves
fulvous, chestnut and burnt umber

My desk: Rolls of parcel tape and Chinese lions. Secondhand books and tangled headphones. Still hot coffee steaming in the green pear mug.
