Winter photo haikus

For a change in rhythm, I decided to describe these winter photos of the nursery in Haiku form. They are not very good, possibly a bit cheesy, but I definitely had fun writing them!

Here are some haikus about nature. This blog has a new haiku every day. This one shows kids how to write haikus. And these are a few funny haikus.

Give it a go – its relaxing and fun and a perfect thing to do in your garden with a cup of tea on a sunny Sunday morning.

Let the sun shine down
