Colinton Dell


The daffodils are almost at the point of opening.


Two roe deer chase each other alongside the path, then they veer and leap gracefully over the path and into the trees.

Lovely as always!

I'm amazed that you are getting so green already! I was wondering are roe deer native to Scotland or introduced?

Crafty Green Poet said...

Bill - roe deer are native but became almost extinct in the 1800s and were then reintroduced.

All the daffodils I have seen today are nearly out - wonder when I shall see the first open one.

Great moment; haiku in spirit, even though not in form.

Wonderful signs of spring!

Love those daffys. Mine are just about to say hello as well.

I am going to google Roe deer.

That must be stunning when the flowers are in bloom. I like the way they meander into the woods.

I cheated and brought a few in where it was warmer to open...

Marvin said...

Soon they will bloom. Ours opened a week or so ago.

That will be a glorious host of golden daffodils!

Your words make for a enchanting scene.

Can't stop spring now!!

EG Wow said...

I guess it must be a LOT warmer in Scotland than it is here in Ontario, Canada! I haven't seen the leaves pole through the soil yet. :) But I am enjoying spring as it pops all over Blogland.

Seeing these only intensifies my longing for spring!

Sam said...

We have had some daffs open too! Love the roe deer too, they always look so majestic don't you think?

Maybe your post had a hand in it - our daffodils have opened this morning! If so - thanks!
