Oh god that's lovely, Mick will be like a dog with two tails trying to better this.

A sparkling photo Dave. Thanks.

Rising now, the season's flow,
No more the paring blade!
Nor easy prance of woodland nymphs
To sallow's flautist, played.

Now catkins dance without a care
Come tune of windblown rhyme,
On withies strong and, yet, untouched,
Until the end of time.

I agree with Ron on black-and-white photography. And Quink Ink, Veronica!.....memories of fountain pens, (I have a beautiful Waterman fountain pen which I rescued from a skip!). Beautiful poem, Philip G.

I don't mind splashing the ink Irene - but coffee - I ask you!

Comment by: Ken R on 8th April 2019 at 20:37

Mick should not be trying to better anyone. There are tons of photos all good in their own way, it is not a contest. Come on Poet join in.

A spiritual photo in many ways Ken. Redolent of a solar eclipse. I hear Strauss' Also Sprach Zarathustra as I look at it. Regards.

Yes, a superb photo. I purchased a Salix gracilistyla 'Mount Aso, a Japanese pussy willow which I find is a exquisite shrub with it having pink catkins, if you see it for sale buy one you won't be disappointed.
