first faint signs of spring—
bouquets of wasted flowers
waiting to sow seeds

  9. Lovely photo and beautiful words that accompany it. It has reminded of Muriel Stuart’s poem:

    The Seed Shop

    Here in quiet and dusty room they lie,
    Faded as crumbled stone or shifting sand,
    Forlorn as ashes, shrivelled, scentless, dry –
    Meadows and gardens running through my hand.

    In this brown husk a dale of hawthorn dreams,
    A cedar in this narrow cell is thrust,
    That will drink deeply of a century’s streams,
    These lilies shall make summer on my dust.

    Here in their simple and safe house of death,
    Sealed in their shells a million roses leap;
    Here I can blow a garden with my breath,
    And in my hand a forest lies asleep.
    Muriel Stuart (1885-1967)

    Thank you for participating in Floral Friday Fotos.
