Little Promises

Lilac 2 flower bud Oct 27 2017

It’s official – winter is nigh

Snowfall has come, dark clouds are high

Leaves are all gone leaving branches so bare

Hoping these buds bring flowers to the air

Next spring.

  1. Those last three are three more that are uncommon here. I do not even remember what aronia flower look like. I would guess that they are like tiny pear blossoms. Forsythia is something I would like to see more of, but there are no gardeners who know how to prune it.
