Now I know the name of these little beauties! How wonderful that they are sharing their heart - I'm so glad this one found you! (There comes a time when you stop finding hearts, and they start finding YOU!)

Your heart is perfect!

Sedum is a lazy gardener's best friend, along with hosta and day lilies! No muss, no fuss, and the product is wonderful....I have these same sedum, as well as a variety of others, some bloom with white, or yellow, or pink!

I love Sedum Helen. I have some from my dad's yard. Very nice Haiku.

A beautiful heart indeed. The haiku touches my heart.

Peace

each time i "find" a heart unexpectedly in nature i smile!
your haiku has given me simple joy as have you!

Bruce Miller said...

Both haiku and photo are beautiful, but the photo does something the haiku does not: it shares less and leaves you wanting with dots of purple against prase-green. The haiku tells all, and skillfully and nicely, but perhaps a little too much with less layering. You might instead end the haiku with a meaningful opposition of theme. For instance,
"black soil crawls beneath" -- an attempt to highlight the zigzag paths between the green leaves, and also possibly the mystery of how purple comes from dark dirt. And more, I hope. All in an effort to withhold, to show less and to make the haiku tease the mind. Let me know what you think too! :))

The green and magenta is stunning, as it that little heart peeking through, in image and haiku! Thank you Helen!

I love how nature surpises us with little joys !
Happy Friday !

I think what Bruce is saying is: "When it comes to writing haiku, less is more."

In this world of "more," "less" is not easy to achieve.

Still, I like your blossoming sedum!

I've been painting a lot and used a lot of purple/pink in the palette... LOVE the photo of the flowers and your haiku! Enjoy the weekend!
