Gardens and Haiku

It is that time of year when the garden is blanketed with snow my creative urges start to stretch out to different areas. I enjoy haiku poetry. A fellow gardener Cathy who is usually Rambling in the Garden must also have felt this urge as she introduced a haiku challenge.

This haiku challenge is sponsored by Ronovan of RonovanWrites. I hope you enjoy it too.
 Here is my stab at haiku with a photo to illustrate.

Fresh – Style

Fresh air swirls in winter sun
Stylish snowy coat

You can click on the photo of the shrub if you want a closer look.
Thank you Ronovan for sponsoring the challenge and thank you Cathy for getting the word out.
