Bertie worries about the primroses

Nature's Tricks

I thought I'd wear my tartan scarf,
To brighten up the winter gloom.
How unexpected then, to see,
For colour, I had company,
A clutch of precious yellow blooms.

Insistently proclaiming spring,
Our primroses are all confused.
For surely we shall soon have snow.
What then for such a pretty show?
Nature can be so hard and cruel.

We're thrilled to be taking part in Rosy and the LLB Gang's Nature Friday blog hop. Why not jump aboard! 


  1. wow I hope the best for your primrose... our daffodils are out in the garden... they are confused too ;O)

  2. The primrose is so pretty, Bertie, and we love your poem and tartan scarf!

    You're right there, Bertie lad... Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx (who is admiring your sonnety style!)

  4. Bertie and that is a very justified worry. OMDs they are lovely posies. I don't think I've ever seen a primrose in bloom.
    STANDING ovation to your poem my bestie WFT!!
    Fresh and primrose are your inspiration!
    Hugs Cecilia

  5. How amazing to see flowers this time of year. We loved your poem and hope you don't get any snow to knock them down.

  6. Gorgeous poem. The primroses may get knocked down, but they'll get up again!

  7. Dear Bertie,

    That is happening here too! The flowers are coming out, but there might still be snow. But maybe not. But our snowdrops and crocuses actually don't seem to mind snow or frost. We do not have primroses. Do primroses like the snow and frost? We love your poem!


  8. We would love to see some pretty blooms soon Bertie. We have had enough of snow and cold already. Hurry spring

  9. Oh Bertie, what a wonderful poem filled with
    so many emotions...we are hoping Spring comes early, and the Primroses live to see another day!

  10. I loves your poem my pal, and I hopes the Primroses survive the coming snow. Bright side is you look most handsome in your tartan scarf!

  11. We think our pals in New York got your snow. They may be ok for now.

  12. Nature is always confused around here. How nice to see some flowers though!
