Like a Buttercup
A tiny drop of sunshine
Cradled in petals
Early morning sunlight is caught by my solitary freesia in a pot on the stoep. Such a cheerful bright spectacle.
I’ve mentioned recently that the garden centres were shut due to Lockdown earlier in the year, when I wanted to replenish my dwindling supply of bulbs. For once I had remembered at the right time of year! Coming from England I still think Spring is in April and you plant your bulbs in September.
But of course, that is topsy-turvy down here, like everything else. You have to plant in April for your Spring bulbs to pop up in September. Year after year I only remember in September, that I should have planted them in April. Oops!
What can I say? I have found my formative years to have a huge impact on my life.
Oh well, this, along with so many other things, will have to wait until 2021 – which is going to be the Best Year Ever!
