The Leaves Speak of Life

Leaves of Spring plants

Leaves surround me

As I walk thru my garden,

Those of Bleeding Hearts

And Roses of all colors,

Lilacs and Lilies,

Leafy green Vincas and Ferns,

All speak to me of life,

That in the dark days of winter

Seemed lost, but was asleep.

NaPoWriMo Day 11–Prompt: significance of flowers, but I chose to write about the leaves instead as they are what are most prominent now, since many plants aren’t blooming but are leafing out.

In the Aftermath Of Winter

Rose bud

Searching for sunshine

A tiny bud pushes forth

Roses rise again

#NaPoWriMo 2019–Day 21–Off Prompt

I am glad to see my roses springing up and back to life after the hard winter we had. I lost a few plants to the cold weather but my roses all survived and are looking healthy and growing.
