Lemon sorbet

The wild daffodils are like icy lemon bells

In the shadowed places of the woods.

Yes – it’s been a cold April!

They glitter in the sunlight

Showing off their cold diamonds.

Later on in my walk,

I come across so many gold and lemon

Sparkles as the sun bounces of the ice on a fence.

(No editing needed here – these are all nature’s own sparkles.)

And finally, Simmie ‘hides’ on the path,

Hoping to pounce out at Ruby as she passes by.

(He’s a silly boy!)

  13. Beautiful frosty daffodils! My daffodils were completely covered with snow this weekend, Fi. I hope that they will be able to revive, along with all the other perennials that were growing. We can still receive snow here till late May!

But how lovely and brilliant are your pictures. Lots of sunshine, bright daffodils and sparkles on the fence, the cute Simmie… Lovely!
