~ a flower for your friday ~
photographed 4/1/20


The primrose,
almost crowded out by the others,
by the hostas and ferns and hydrangea.
I planted these flowers probably 20 years ago,
and they return every spring, good years and bad years.
They’re not showy or demanding,
but they’re fresh and they’re earthy,
they’re compact, textured, tactile.
Come springtime, they hold their own.


Thanks for visiting clover & ivy.
