a breeze
across the waterfall
scent of lime flowers



(the lime tree, also known as the linden tree, Tilia vulgaris; not the tree that produces the citrus fruit lime)

Perfect blend of photo and haiku (to my way of thinking, at least). I never thought about 'lime flowers' before: so evocative, even if a world away from citrus limes. Love the new pic.

What an interesting fragrance to write about. I wouldn't mind a breeze blowing in with that scent.

Love your shadow shot below. Hope all is well.

Love the new header.
Love the scent of lime trees too Juliet - it all seems to come on one day, when the air is full of the distinctive scent - there is no mistaking it.
I am looking forward to reading your Inspiration meme on Wednesday

We have a beautiful linden tree that grew up with me and my sisters back home- a lovely shade tree!
And a lovely haiku too!

I like this, it's nice to engage the sense of smell in haiku. Sometimes it's one I overlook.
