Yellow Honeysuckle

Haiku 200

Low hanging sunshine

New flowers and golden leaves

Winter’s all Yellow


Yellow Syringa

The colour of winter in the Cape:

Yellow honeysuckle enticing the Sunbirds’ return; Syringa berries and golden leaves ready to fall; Apple Tree leaves, capturing a sunbeam;

Yellow Apple Leaf

All these make a glorious golden winter time.


post script: Here’s a lovely acoustic clip of Donovan singing his iconic hit “Colours”,Β beginning with the line Yellow is the colour of my true love’s hair.

      Thank you very much πŸ˜€
      I don’t know much about photography – I just kept the sun behind me and positioned the camera so the dark trees made a background. πŸ™‚

    Is your honeysuckle fragrant? We had some in Texas that smelled so sweet. We also had night blooming jasmine that perfumed the air as well. Yellow is not quite the color of our winters. πŸ₯Ά

    What a beautiful Haiku to go with the stunning yellow honeysuckle. What a vibrant yellow!! Winters here are just white and dirty gray. Your winter is so colorful. The yellow apple leaf is quite the beauty too!
