One coloured primrose…

March 14 007

“One coloured primrose growing from a clump,

One Lenten rose, one golden aconite,

Dog Toby in his ruff, with varnish bright,

One sprig of daphne, roseate or white,

March 14 036

One violet beneath a mossy stump,

One gold and purple iris, brave but small,

Iris 004

Child of the Caucasus, and bind them all

Into a tussie-mussie packed and tight

And envy not the orchid’s rich delight.”

Vita Sackville-West.   The Garden.
