Muscari blooms, Sheltered from the evenings snow; Spring delights!
I was working on this verse when Mark Scott’s seasonal blog arrived. Here is a link to his wonderful blog:

I like that spring delight among the lingering winter delight, Ashley!
Many thanks, Indira, for your visit 🌹🙋♂️
Thank you very much for the lovely photo and words, Ashley.
A little like Denmark right now; spring flowers amidst dunes of snow.
The daylight is surely increasing! Thank you, Marina, have a great weekend too 🌹🙋♂️
Thank you for sharing. I googled Muscari and Muscari vs. hyacinth. They look so beautiful.
Thank you for visiting my blog. I’m happy to make contact again. 🌹🙋♂️
Thank you, Barbara, have a great weekend! 🌹🙋♂️
How beautiful and amazing! Your verse says it all.
Dear Rosaliene, thank you for your lovely comments. 🌹🙋♂️
Lovely words and picture, with that mixture of winter and spring. Where I live, the weather is crazy, below zero a week ago and sixteen degrees today 🙄 Un abrazo y buen fin de semana ¡¡
Thank you for your comments. I think the weather is crazy no matter where we live! 🕺🙋♂️
Hi Ashley, Wonderful haiku and photo! Thanks so much for sharing your work and adding to the conversation about the year’s first flowers!
Hi Mark, I get excited about all the seasons but spring is special as it is all about new beginnings, and the renewal of the earth. Thank you for your visit. 😊🙋♂️
I love your haiga of the grape hyacinths surrounded by snow! The image and hokku are both beautiful, Ashleaf! (“Modern haiga allows the use of photography, as well as digital or graphic images.” from poets.org … https://poets.org/text/haiga-haiku-calligraphy-and-painting)
Hi, Edo! Your comments are always much appreciated. Thank you. I shall check the link, of course, as it is my big dream to actually illustrate my verses! The little Muscari are lovely, they are reminders that one doesn’t have to be of celebrity status to be beautiful. Have a great weekend. 🌷🌸🙋♂️
Snow and Spring, strange … makes a great picture with you lovely verse.
Thank you, Ute, for your visit. Any snow at Kew this season? 🌸🙋♂️

Dear Marina, thank you 🤗 I really love this time of year as the daylight grows steadily. 🌸🌷🙋♂️
It’s a wonderful time of year, I agree. Almost as beautiful as Fall! 😉 🌸🌱🙏
The muscari is beautiful and really stands out against the ❄️ snow. X
Thank you, Sharon, and a day later the snow is gone! It’s still cold though x 🤗🌷🙋♂️
Wow! What beautiful words and the contrast of the purple with the snow is simply delightful!
