First Day of Spring (officially)

bocage for haibun_pe

A hiding place for
wild things along the bocage —
waiting for release

The bocage is the French name for a network of banks and hedgerows guarding sunken tracks through the countryside in the Normandy Cotentin.

    What we used to call hollow lanes back home in Berkshire… Bocage is so much prettier! No sign of the weather abating down here just yet, but I have started my Assault on the Garden list, and will be hauling the trailer out of the shed to stand ready for loading.
