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

on Knippophia praecox

glowing and greeting.


Aloe aloe kids

wooden park with swings and things

climb and laugh and play


A bird made of rust

in a nest of succulents

outside the office.


A. ciliaris

in flower as a mauve star

so good in my tea


Walk in and see us

Fall in love with our colours

dancing in the breeze


Pathways to lead you

through inspiration and dreams

your garden design.


Cool shady seating

a picnic in the shadows

rest your weary feet


House under mountains

nurturing baby seedlings

till we can sell them


Succulent koppie

kom kuier in this bathroom

don’t forget to flush


Three white goats looking

don’t climb into my garden

but thanks for your milk


The Aloe ferox

so medicinally great

garden pharmacy


Happy planting from

Good Hope Gardens Nursery

hope to see you soon
