Friday 55 Flash Fiction # 68 Spring


Unruly grass, needing a first cut.

Dead foliage, needs removing to allow new growth.

Previously bare branches, now sprouting buds.

Daffodils pushing their heads through the earth.

Snowdrops braving the last of the snow and frost,

shaking their heads in the biting March winds.

Just a few weeks before the garden bursts into life again.

Don't you just love Spring? 

Friday 55 Flash Fiction is brought to you by G-man (Mr Knowitall). The idea is you write a story in exactly 55 words. If you want to take part pop over and let G-man know when you've posted your 55.

I do love Spring but it has apparently decided to wait to make an appearance here in Connecticut! Where - oh where - are the daffodils?!?

We don't have any of that yet- this time of year Michigan resembles Mordor...

Akelamalu said...

Me too, thanks Kaknu :)

I love summer Thom but Spring holds so much promise doesn't it? :)

Yes bring it on Dumdad, we're ready for it!

We've had a lot of rain here too Flowerpot but it doesn't stop the daffs does it? LOL

Thankyou Nessa. I've never tried to write Haiku so I'll take that as a compliment. :)

Alas the photographs are not mine Daryl, I'm not very good with a camera - they're courtesy of Google Images.

Isn't it lovely when the trees start sprouting Connie and the birds get twittery? :)

It is indeed Bee x

Exactly Citizen :)

It's on its way Linda, it's on it's way. x

OH trust you G-man! LOL

Oh Spring is definitely in the air Ciara x

The March winds have been biting here too Ron but Spring is definitely on the way. :)

You're still in winter Buff? OH shame. xx

Mary said...

I do love Spring! Unfortunately, winter's grasp has not yet been broken here, but I know it is coming!

Great 55!

Mojo said...

We're slowly shaking off winter here... a little slower than most years but even at their worst, our winters are fairly mild so it's not so bad as all that. I love the anticipation that comes with this time of year -- except for the anticipation of the pollen storm that will soon erupt from it.

I think that we all need cheering up at this time of year and thankfully
Spring has been more cheerful than
usual this year.

Akelamalu said...

Spring never fails to cheer me up Cheshire Wife, the lighter mornings and evening and daffodils - wonderful! :0
