A post Christmas haiku chain (from Grandma for Fraser)

Festivals – been and gone,
gifts unwrapped, eaten, broken.
The year has turned,

resolutions made,
hunkered down til Spring has sprung
Pray it’s not too long.

Hope not long deferred:
today seen on roadside bank
first buds of primrose.

This one’s a bit more cheerful than the Winter Rubaiyat I wrote this time last year! https://vivinfrance.wordpress.com/2013/02/27/winter-rubiyt/

early primroses 2012
These were from February last year, a little later and more open.  Yesterday there were only tight buds and bunches of leaves, and I didn’t have the camera with me.  We haven’t had much frosty weather yet, so they are earlier than usual.

    Lovely. You sum things up so well. We had a nice sunny day today after the mistral chased out the clouds. Chilly but lovely. All the best and Happy New Year. Alice

    Well expressed so succinctly!
    I would say those primroses are somewhat premature!
