Haiku Reflections: Pretty Primrose



I was quite pleased with this close-up I recently took of this little primrose houseplant. It has survived a long cold winter on the windowsill to once again dazzle, with velvety petals of yellow and creamy white.

Isn’t it wonderful when nature provides us with this kind of inspiration and hope for renewal ?  🙂

Happy Spring!
